Report: Totti wanted by Samp

As Francesco Totti confirms ‘another club owner wants to put their trust in me’, that offer is reported to come from Sampdoria.

Totti explosively announced his departure from Roma at a Press conference on Monday, and Gazzetta dello Sport claims Samp President Massimo Ferrero reached out to him a month ago.

Ferrero was born in Rome, has been linked with buying the Giallorossi in the past and is on record as trying to bring in the iconic No 10’s former teammate Daniele De Rossi.

“I will now take other paths. At the moment another club owner wants to put their trust in me, I’ll always be ready,” explained the Lupi legend.

“At this moment, there are many things I can do. I am evaluating, calmly, all the offers on the table and the one that makes me feel happiest, I’ll give it my all from the heart.

“I am not here to point the blame towards one or the other. We had started a journey, it was not respected, so I am moving on.

“I won’t be left unemployed. I received some offers from Italian clubs, including one this morning. I take everything into consideration, because I am free.

“Juve or Napoli, let’s not go wild here… No, out of respect for Roma, I wouldn’t do that. I mean stuff like FIFA, UEFA, etc.

“Some things I read first in the papers and then I found out from Roma, so imagine how much they kept me informed.”

The Blucerchiati were also the side who came close to signing Totti at the start of his playing career.
