Roma not interested in Bastos

Reports of Roma's interest in Lyon man Michel Bastos have been rejected by the player's agent.

Transfer speculation alleges that the Giallorossi could make a January move for the midfielder after supposedly failing to land him in the summer.

However, speaking to Laroma24.it, representative Fabio Parisi has dismissed the Giallorossi transfer links.

"It's absolutely not true," Parisi noted. "Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini didn't ask for him on transfer deadline day. He's never asked for him…"

Bastos, a Brazilian left-sided player, signed a new contract with his Ligue 1 club during the summer after a proposed move to Juventus fell through.
