AS Roma and Italy legend Francesco Totti have been given an offer by English side Leeds to bring the retired veteran forward back into action this summer.
Several reports accross Italy suggest that Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has offered Francesco Totti to come out of retirement and play for the Championship side.
Totti retired from playing football in 2017, scoring 307 goals in an overall of 786 appearances for the Giallorossi. Later he was appointed at a directorial role at Roma, but left his beloved club in early June, after he felt he was “stabbed in the back” by club owners, and also that they “excluded him from every decision.”
The 42-year old’s former team mate Marco Borriello was reportedly spending time with Totti recently, according to TMW.
“I know that a great leader of an English team has made him a proposal to go back to playing football. Radrizzani of Leeds? I don’t know.” he said.
Fox Italia confirmed that the club is indeed Leeds, by summarizing the report: “In all likelihood, it is therefore precisely the Leeds of Marcelo Bielsa.”
The Peacocks are also reported to have links with another Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon, who is now a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
