AS Roma GM Franco Baldini says Francesco Totti's form warrants a new contract.

Baldini was asked when negotiations would begin to extend the captain's current deal.

"His contract does not expire at the end of the season, but in June 2014, so there will be the chance to talk about it at the right time," replied Baldini on RAI.

"In any case, he proves he deserves a contract renewal every time he steps on to the field."
