Cruzeiro have confirmed their interest in bringing former Argentina international Juan Pablo Sorin back to Belo Horizonete.
The 32-year-old fullback is a free agent after leaving Hamburg, and Cruzeiro have offered him the opportunity to continue rehabilitation on a left knee injury at their Advanced Sport Rehabilitation Centre with the hope of signing him.
'Sorin will come here to recover,' said the club's football manager Eduardo Maluf. 'We haven't seen him so we don't know the extent of his injury. But like every club with a structure like this, like Sao Paulo, we want to have everything in place and not miss the opportunity to add him to our squad.'
Sorin has played for several clubs in his career, including two spells with Cruzeiro from 2000-2001 and again in 2004, collecting three titles and establishing himself as a fan favourite.
He has also played for Argentinos, Juventus, River Plate, Lazio, Barcelona, Paris St Germain, Villarreal and Hamburg, while also appearing in the 2002 and 2006 World Cups for Argentina.
