Francesco Totti hopes to convince Paulo Dybala to join Roma next season


    Roma legend, Totti, has disclosed that he intends to urge Paulo Dybala to join the club at the end of the season.

    Both will be in Milan on Monday for a charity match at the San Siro organized by Samuel Eto’o. Totti revealed that he aims to utilize the day to meet up with Dybala in the hopes of luring the 28-year-old to Roma when his Juventus contract expires next month.

    “We’ll see if we can get him to Rome,” he remarked. “On Monday, I’ll meet with him and try to persuade him. We’re in Milan to watch Eto’o play. We’ll play together, and I’ll offer him some suggestions.

    “I’ll attempt to get something into his skull. We’re hoping to succeed. That is if Roma share my viewpoint.”

    Jose Mourinho is apparently contemplating an ambitious push to persuade Dybala to join the club, prompting Totti’s comments.

    Dybala has been linked with a move to Inter Milan in Serie A, although Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal in the Premier League, as well as Atletico Madrid in Spain, are also interested.

    Zaniolo, Mourinho’s top player, appears to be on his way out this summer, with Juventus showing interest in the Italian international. His departure would free up some cash on the payroll and allow Dybala to play more regularly under Mourinho.

    Dybala, who has spent seven seasons at Juventus, was substituted in the 78th minute of Monday’s 2-2 draw with Lazio, ending an emotional evening for the Argentine playmaker. Following the contest, which was his final home game for the club, the 28-year-old broke down in tears.

    His contract is slated to expire at the end of June. The club retracted an offer to extend it, preferring to let him leave as a free agent. The 28-year-old had intended to stay in Turin and had only announced his departure last week.

    The Argentina international wrote in an emotional Instagram post on Sunday: “Finding the perfect words to greet you is difficult. There are so many years and emotions involved in this situation.

    “I had hoped we would have spent much more time together, but fate has us on different roads. “Every game, every goal, you made me experience, I will never forget.”

    “I learned, lived, and dreamt as I grew up. Nobody can take away our seven years of magic, our 12 championships, and our 115 goals. Never.

    “Thank you for your continued support during these trying times. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout the years, from the first to the last, from fans to club employees, coaches, teammates, employees, and managers. Wearing this vital shirt and the captain’s armband has been one of my greatest joys in life, and I wish to pass it down to my children and grandkids one day. “
