Mar 1, IRNA -- FC St. Pauli midfielder Ali-Reza
Mansourian is scheduled to return to his former Iranian
team Esteghlal, the daily Hamburger Morgenpost reported
"I only need to sign," said the 30-year-old Mansourian who was also linked with two Cypriot first division teams, Anarthosis Famagusta and Apoel Nicosia.
Mansourian joined Hamburg's FC St.Pauli in 2000 but has been frustrated with his substitute role as his current team is struggling to avoid relegation into the second Bundesliga division.
Mansourian, along with fellow compatriots Ali Daei and Mehdi Mahdavikia, are the only Iranian "legionaries" to still play in the German Bundesliga.
