Javier Pastore on Tuesday officially became an AS Roma player and while that delighted their fanbase, the Giallorossi’s Twitter account (English), once again proved they are kings of social media with a post that is undoubtedly gold.
The Serie A side have been on a signing spree of late, with Pastore becoming their seventh acquisition of the summer.
Usually, a high-profile club making waves in the transfer market would never go unnoticed, but with the 2018 FIFA World Cup taking place in Russia right now, most people are unaware about the Italian outfit’s splurges.
Davide Santon’s announcement was pretty funny, but Roma really outdid themselves with Pastore:

Making a play on the word pastor, which is a synonym for shepherd, is one thing, but to incorporate it in such an obviously photoshopped picture is something only the Giallorossi could do.
Roma, on the back of a brilliant campaign in which they reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, will undoubtedly be one of the teams to watch next season.
While they have made a plethora of signings, they have been remarkably astute in their pursuits, with each player adding depth to the squad.
Radja Nainggolan has been the biggest departure so far, but with Roma seemingly not done yet with their dealings in the transfer market, it seems unlikely they will miss the Belgian hardman.
