Phase field: calculation of the |grad f| div(grad f/|grad f|) term

The equation i've to solve (Y.Sun,C. Beckermann, Sharp interface tracking using phase-field equation, Journal of computational physics) is:
df/dt+V*grad f=a*[ laplacian f+f*(1-f)/b-|grad f| div [ grad f/|grad f|]]
with a,b parameters (or constants).
how can I calculate the "|grad f| div(grad f/|grad f|) " term in an esplicit way in OF?
This is how I discretised the equation (except the term i'm talking about) neglecting, for the moment, the transport term:
f=phase and ophase is the old time step value of the field (i know i can use ddt directly but i need to perform some coupling later so i prefer to be "free" to discretise by myself the temporal derivative)
