Shortly after stating his desire to continue playing, reports enter the fray today regarding Francesco Totti in America. But not in the MLS, rather in NASL, and not with Nesta but with the New York Cosmos. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the very franchise that showcased Pelé presented an offer to the former captain of Roma. Reports have been emanating from throughout the globe about how the former Roma captain and already legend will continue his career. Some thought he would immediately enter the management sector with his boyhood club and remain in Rome.

Now he appears poised to play on, and this news comes as not only a sporting venture but also a marketability opportunity. As a World Cup Champion and a hero of Serie A for the past decades, Totti is a symbol not only of Roma but also of Italian football. A phone call to past Azzurri teammates Andrea Pirlo, Alex Del Piero, or Alessandro Nesta would give Totti an idea of what it's like to live in the USA. But it remains to be seen if he will follow any of their footsteps across the Atlantic for a new playing experience.
