Italian legend’s current deal expires next summer.
Roma captain Francesco Totti is set to sign a new contract with the club which will see him extend his playing career for another two years.
The Giallorosso legend turns 37 later this month, but has continued his fine form from last season with a bright start to life under coach Rudi Garcia.
The former Italian international continues to pull the strings in a more withdrawn role behind the strikers for his hometown club, while his fitness levels remain impressive despite his advancing years.
It is understood that Roma have offered him a two-year deal, which will see him earn €3.5m per season according to Sport Mediaset, as reported by Football Italia.
Reports also claim that once he ends his playing career he will then be handed a five-year deal to become a club ambassador.
Totti shocked Roma fans ahead of the new season at the official unveiling of the club’s new kit by claiming that it would be the last jersey he would wear. However, his comments were largely received as a polite reminder to Roma to offer new terms.
Having spent his entire career at the club, Totti is still loved by the supporters who will hope that he can continue to be a focal point for the team under Garcia.
With the midfield trio of Daniele De Rossi, Kevin Strootman and Miralem Pjanic taking responsibility off his shoulders to create, Totti has been deployed in a role where he is free to roam across the pitch and assist the likes of Gervinho and Adem Ljajic.
Considering his current form, it is no wonder that Roma are keen for their talismanic captain to sign an extension, and reports suggest the contract could be signed later this month.
