Roma Are “Clear Favorites” To Sign Bastos

Roma look ready to capture another player in the winter market, this time it is Brazilian leftback Michel Bastos, currently plying his trade at Al-Ain.

Today, his agent Martha Fisher claimed that Roma are the “clear favorites” for the services of the player.

“I can confirm that I spoke with the leaders of Napoli, but the deal has not closed as they’re claiming in France. The only negotiations at an advanced stage in Italy are with Rome, as Rudi Garcia was the coach of Michel at Lille. At this moment, the Giallorossi are the clear favorite. I discussed with Napoli, and also with many teams around the world. The player wants to get away from the UAE to compete fot the World Cup, the hypothesis of a loan is possible. The only possibilities in Italy are Rome and Napoli, not Juventus. Abroad, I have also been asked by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.”
