Sources: Cosmos not pursuing Francesco Totti



Francesco Totti continues to be linked with a move to the New York Cosmos, but it doesn’t appear the AS Roma legend will be joining the NASL club any time soon.

Sources tell SBI the Cosmos are not actively pursuing the 39-year-old Italian star. The Cosmos were previously linked with Totti earlier this year, but denied a move was imminent. Sources say that stance has not changed despite recent links.

According to reports from Sky Sports Italia, Totti is favoring a move to the U.S. In addition, Italian compatriot Claudio Ranieri has reportedly offered the playmaker a one-year deal to join Leicester City.

Totti has spent his entire career with Roma, which he joined as a youth player in 1989. The 39-year-old has made 596 appearances for the Italian club while registering 245 goals. Roma has reportedly shown no indications the club will keep him past his contract’s expiration this summer.

What do you think of the Totti news? How would he have fit with the Cosmos? Expect any other clubs in the U.S. to make a move?
