Roma boss Garcia says deal close for Michel Bastos

AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia is confident signing Al Ain winger Michel Bastos.

Bastos has also been linked with Napoli.

Garcia said: "It's not done yet, but negotiations are at an advanced stage. He is a versatile player, which is what interests me. He can play on the right or left, has a strong shot, good technique and can also play left-back, so we are covered in many different areas.

"I have been tracking this player since he left Lille, going through Lyon, Schalke and Al Ain. I always spoke to him and knew this was a possibility for us. Above all, he was very eager to come back to Europe, so I am happy. He's not just a player of a top level, but also a good man."
