Real Madrid’s Baptista keen on Roma switch
Real Madrid attacker Julio Baptista is keen on a move to Roma.
Roma are interested in the Brazil international, whose agent Herminio Menendez, said: “Roma are a great team, which in recent years has done well in Europe.”
“Even in this season they will play in the Champions league, so for Julio it would certainly be a welcome destination.”
I think the main reason why Julio Baptista wants to join Roma is because Roma will be playing in the Champions League and by no means is Roma a minow in the Champions League now. You really have to beat Roma in order to beat Roma, it is not like a mere formality. Last season Roma knocked out Real Madrid quite comfortably, winning both home and away which was really a shame for Real Madrid.
I could not even watch the match,itwas just so humiliating. It was like the first time in 4 years that Real Madrid got a little bit lucky in the Champions League draw because last few years, Real Madrid always get the most difficult opponent in the round of 16 stage. This time I thought Real Madrid would go through but didn’t.
I think Serie A would be a good challenge for Baptista as it would really give him the opportunity to show his strength as we all know, the defenders in Serie A are
