Captain and Roma legend to be rewarded with impending contract renewal.
It looks likely that Roma captain Francesco Totti will finish his glorious career at the capital club.
Despite a somewhat tumultuous relationship between the local icon and Roma coach Luciano Spalletti, fuelled rumours that Totti might seek to finish off his career somewhere else. Due to his recent brilliant run of form, the tension has seemingly dissipated as a result.
The new contract will allow the Italian and Roma legend to play one final season with his beloved club. The contract will see him earn a figure of €1.1 million with partial ownership of his image rights. President James Pallotta iwill arrive later this month in order to put the finishing touches to the new deal.
Lately the 39 year old has excelled as a super sub, lashing in four goals and two assists in 132 minutes of Serie A football. This impact alone is enough of a reason to convince the Roma hierarchy to keep him.
Overall Totti has scored five goals, as well as three assists in 14 appearances from all competitions.
