Roma Sign Baptista!

AS Roma have confirmed the signing of Julio Baptista from Real Madrid.

The transfer fee is 9 million euro, payable in 3 parts.

Baptista signed a 4 year deal with Roma, and will earn an estimated 4.5 million euro per season.

"The Beast" has spent time in both La Liga and the Premier League, but this will be his first time playing in Serie A. This is a big signing for Roma, as I felt they hadn't done enough this transfer season.

Baptista scored 4 goals for Madrid last season.

Baptista is horrible, and completely overrated.

Watching him play at Arsenal was incredibly painful, and I feel sorry for the AS Roma fans who will be unfortunate enough to have to watch him every week.

I agree that he is somewhat overrated, as he only scored 4 goals for Madrid last season.

If he's not overrated, he was easily overpaid for, as the fee Roma paid was absurd.
