Vagner Love to join CSKA Moscow for a THIRD time

Former Brazil striker Vagner Love is close to returning to CSKA Moscow, where he first made his name in Europe.

The 35-year-old has rescinded his contract with Corinthians where he scored 14 goals in 72 appearances.

And according to Globo Esporte, Love is in advanced talks over a second return to Russian side CSKA.

Love joined CSKA from Palmeiras in 2003, winning a host of trophies including the Russian Premier League and UEFA Cup.

After a return to Brazil, Love again joined CSKA in 2013 but soon moved on to Shandong Luneng in China.

Spells at Monaco, Alanyaspor, Besiktas and Corinthians followed for the well-travelled Brazilian.

And now, at the age of 35, he is on the verge of returning to the place he became well known, CSKA Moscow.

Love has scored 298 goals in his career and the Russians will hope he can bring his magic touch for a third time.
