Roma are ready to hand skipper Francesco Totti an amazing new, long-term contract.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma intend to secure Totti to a new deal through to 2014 before the end of July. The agreement would see Totti play out his career - until he's 38 - in Giallorossi colours.

Roma and Totti have held preliminary talks about the new deal and the club captain has agreed to take a 10-20 per cent pay-cut on his £5 million salary in exchange for the long-term agreement.
