FourFourTwo reports that Italian foward Alberto Gilardino will return to Serie A permanently after Palermo announced his signing from Chinese club, Guangzhou Evergrande.
The 33-year-old joined Italian coach Marcello Lippi at Chinese Super League champions Evergrande last July but spent the second half of last season on loan at Fiorentina.
Palermo said in an official statement
“The Rosanero club is pleased to welcome one of the most decorated players in Italian football, a world champion with the national team in 2006, and with Milan in 2007,”.
Gilardino scored four Serie A goals in 14 appearances during his loan spell at Fiorentina.
