Soccer: Roma sign Brazilian winger Bastos
Garcia gets another reinforcement after Nainggolan21 January, 11:23
Roma, who are champions Juventus's main rival in this season's title race, had already made a big signing by beating off competition from AC Milan and Napoli to land Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan from Cagliari.
Roma have signed 30-year-old Bastos, who has 10 Brazil caps, on loan with an option for a permanent deal at the end of the season.
Coach Rudi Garcia knows Bastos well as the Brazilian played for him at his former club Lille.
Roma are second in Serie A with 47 points from 20 games, eight behind leaders Juve.
The two sides meet at Rome's Stadio Olimpico later on Tuesday in an Italian Cup quarterfinal.
