Agent Marta Fisher claims Roma are frontrunners to sign Al Ain winger Michel Bastos not Napoli
Marta Fisher, the agent of Al Ain winger Michel Bastos, insists Roma are favourites to sign the 30 year-old.
It was reported yesterday that Napoli were close to an agreement and that Bastos could even undergo a medical over the weekend.
Despite those claims, Fisher now believes Roma are more likely to sign Bastos, given the player's history with Head Coach Rudi Garcia, who he worked with at Lille.
“I have spoken with the directors at Napoli, but the deal is not closed,” the agent told calcionapoli24.it.
“The only negotiations at an advanced stage in Italy are with Roma, as Rudi Garcia was the Michel’s Coach at Lille. At this moment, the Giallorossi are the clear favourite.
“I have spoken with Napoli, as indeed with many teams around the world. The player wants to get away from the UAE, the assumption of a loan deal is possible.
“The only cases in Italy are with Roma and Napoli - Juventus are excluded.”
