The playmaker has been linked with money-spinning moves to America recently with his current deal with his only senior club due to expire next summer.

But it now appears as if his future at the Stadio Olimpico is assured after the club's president, James Pallotta, signalled the Giallorossi's intentions.

"We are going to talk to Francesco about a new deal," Pallotta told reporters in the USA. "We want to build his future with Roma for the coming years".

Totti has made almost 700 appearances for the club since his debut in 1992. Now aged 36 he reiterated his desire to achieve more success with Roma as he refuted the MLS rumours.

He said: "I'm focused solely on Roma. The club is trying to put together a squad that can compete at a high level.

"You win titles with strong players. We hope to compete at the highest level in Europe soon."

And his president has also set out his aims for 2013/14 as Pallotta continued: "Our aim is not just getting a Champions League place but becoming number one."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
