It’s reported that Roma have performed a U-turn, and will give Francesco Totti a new contract.
The Giallorossi captain’s future has been the subject of intense debate in recent months, as the club wanted him to retire and become a director.
Er Pupone doesn’t want to leave the club, but isn’t ready to hang up his boots yet, presenting the possibility that he could leave at the end of the season.
However, Calciomercato is now reporting that Totti is about to sign a new one-year deal with the Lupi which would see him play beyond his 40th birthday.
The former Italian international has been crucial to Luciano Spalletti’s side, coming off the bench to turn the game around repeatedly in recent weeks.
An official announcement is expected in the coming days, but it now appears Totti is set to stay with the club for what will almost certainly be the final year of his playing career.
