Roma Sporting Director Daniele Prade Glad To Have Kept Jeremy Menez & Julio Baptista

Roma sporting director Daniele Prade has admitted that he is relieved that the Giallorossi have kept forwards Jeremy Menez and Julio Baptista until at least the end of the season.

The Brazilian was very close to joining Inter while Menez was close to a Paris Saint-Germain switch, but Prade has managed to keep them both.

"Baptista was very close to wearing an Inter jersey," the director declared to Sky. "But we were unable to reach an accord with the Nerazzurri.

"As for Menez, we decided to keep him as the club has invested €10 million in him, and we believe in him and what he can do," concluded Prade.
