striker is today being linked with a shock return to the side ahead of the 2014 .

He also looks set to net a new deal with the Giallorossi it is being reported in Corriere dello Sport as he looks to beat Silvio Piola’s all-time Serie A scoring record.

Former coach Carlo Mazzone told Tuttosport today that “I believe that Totti would do well at the World Cup” while Gazzetta dello Sport are also claiming that he could be back for another go at the Jules Rimet trophy.

‘Er Pupone’ of course won the trophy in 2006 despite an injury scare just months before and netted a penalty against Australia en route to the victory.
