“Forza Roma! I am very happy to be here,” the Al Ain winger told waiting journalists at the airport in Rome.
He arrives on loan for six months with wages worth €1.5m and Roma will have an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season for €3.5m.
Bastos should have his medical tomorrow and will be in the stands for Roma’s Coppa Italia quarter-final against Juventus on Tuesday.
