Baptista leaves Malaga for Cruzeiro

Brazilian forward Julio Baptista has ended his contract with Malaga by mutual consent, the La Liga side revealed on their official website.

Los Boquerones allowed the player to leave the club on a free transfer after numerous injuries prevented him from showing all he’s got at La Rosaleda.

Malaga have also revealed that the 31-year-old will be returning to Brazil to join Cruzeiro.

“Julio Baptista and Malaga reached an amicable agreement on Friday to terminate the striker’s contract,” a statement on club’s official website read.

“Malaga would like to wish the Brazilian the best of luck for the future and his new career with Cruzeiro,”

Julio Baptista spent three years at Sao Paulo before joining Sevilla in the summer of 2003, where some impressive showings and 38 goals in 63 league matches saw him earn a lucrative move to Real Madrid.

Despite enjoying a bright start to his career at Santiago Bernabeu, the Brazilian eventually found himself on the fringes and after spending one season on loan at Arsenal, he left los Blancos to join Roma.

Having failed to prove his worth at Stadio Olimpico as well, Baptista arrived at Malaga in January 2011, but his spell with los Boquerones was plagued by numerous injuries, and it remains to be seen if he can kick-start his career in Brazil.
