Malaga Offer Roma Striker Julio Baptista A Three-Year Deal - Report

Roma striker Julio Baptista faces La Liga return as Malaga make progress in landing the out of favour Brazilian.

The 29-year-old Brazilian hitman joined the Lupi two years ago, but his adventure in the capital has never connected him with a supreme role in the side and he continues to be pushed back to the margins of the squad by Marco Borriello.

Itasportpress now reports Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini has offered the striker a three-and-a-half year deal.

The Spanish side are expected to offer Roma around €8 million for the transfer. But there are suggestions that they could take him on loan until the end of the season.
