Veteran striker Francesco Totti has suggested Roma's new home kit is "the last one" he will ever wear - heightening speculation he will retire next year.

The 36-year-old has scored 227 league goals - the second highest all-time tally in Serie A - over 20 years with the Giallorossi but his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2013-14 season.

And when posing for Gazzetta dello Sport photographers in Roma's latest red and gold jersey today, he responded to the question "How does it feel, Francesco?" by saying: "I've worn a lot of them, but this is the last one."

It is understood the comment was meant to be taken ironically but it has also been reported the former Italy striker is unhappy with the lack of progress over a new contract at the Stadio Olimpico.

Then, perhaps in an attempt to change the subject, Roma's new French head coach Rudi Garcia added: "This shirt is unique because we will win with this one."

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
