Ex-Juventus midfielder to make Serie A return?
According to Turkish sports site Milliyet, the 29-year-old Brazilian could be heading back to the Peninsula before the end of his current contract.
Lazio coach Vladimir Petkovic is interested in bringing the player to the Olimpico as he looks to reinforce the side’s midfield for next season.
Melo had stops at Juventus and Fiorentina before moving to the Turkish giants on loan in 2011. He was once again loaned out to the side this season, and they have an option to sign the player for €6.5 million at the end of the season.
The Brazilian arrived in Europe in 2005 and has also played for top division sides Almeria, Racing Santander and Mallorca. His contract with the Istanbul club runs until June 2015.
