The AS Roma legend has put an end to recent speculation by reasserting his priorities lie in Italy.
Whilst Francesco Totti will be one of the major draws to the MLS All-Star game on Wednesday, that will be his last occasion as an MLS attraction for some time.
The Roma legend has broken MLS hearts by confirming that, unfortunately, a move to America isn’t on the cards any time soon.
Speculation arose surrounding Totti’s future recently due to his well-known relationship with former Italian national team striker and current Montreal Impact hotshot Marco Di Vaio.
“It’s true. [Di Vaio] asked me if I had the desire to play in America,” Totti revealed to MLSSoccer.com, “But right now I’m only thinking about Roma and that’s it. I have a contract to respect and then one can have these life experiences. He’s happy.
“Could I follow Marco Di Vaio to the MLS? He made a lifestyle choice, I have a contract with Roma that I intend to respect and am focused solely on Roma. I can only speak highly of Di Vaio. He told me he’s very happy in Canada.”
Di Vaio and Totti will have the chance to face each other one more time when the MLS All-Stars take on AS Roma this Wednesday, the Impact striker having been selected following nine league goals in just 11 games this season. Roma will be the first side from outside of the Premier League to face the All-Stars.
