When Francesco Totti opens his mouth is never banal. The former captain of the Roma he does not belong to that category of insiders who always use the same trite and trite phrases. Even as a player he didn’t mince his words and even now that he is partly far from the mechanisms of football, he continues to be talked about.
Yesterday afternoon, in fact, on the sidelines of the inauguration of the new Bruno Conti sports club, the Pupone released a long interview to the microphones of Sky and of course there was no shortage of questions about Paulo Dybala. As you know, the Argentine will leave Juventus on a free transfer and among the teams running to sign him there was also Roma.
During another interview a few weeks ago, Totti announced that he would meet her Joya on the occasion of a charity match and that there he would try to convince him to sign for the Giallorossi.
Over time, however, Rome has slipped away more and more and now it is theInter to be very close to the bang. In the interview, the journalist asked him nicely if Javier Zanetti, who was also present at the charity match, was better than him in persuading the Joyabut the Giallorossi captain replies: “It’s better if I don’t touch this topic”.
The tone with which he says it is the ironic one typical of Totti. With his words, however, he lets us understand that something happened, that he really tried to bring Dybala to Rome, but that someone else opposed the negotiation. This is also clear from a later statement, in which he states that “If it depended on him there would be good hope”. This means that there is another character who has stood in the way of the deal. But who can it be?
Since Francesco Totti is no longer part of the yellow and red leadership, hardly anyone from the club will have given him a mandate to deal personally with the Argentine player. Therefore the possibility that someone from the Capitoline staff has hindered him cannot be ruled out a priori.
Or, maybe the company frowned upon the attempt of its former captain, but withdrew in the face of Dybala’s economic demands. Perhaps this is precisely what Totti refers to, that is, the lack of courage on the part of the management to carry out a economic sacrifice which would have allowed the team to make a clear qualitative leap.
Finally, and even this track seems quite plausible, it may have been Jorge Antúnattorney of the Joya, to refuse the destination. On the other hand, for an agent it is better to see his client in a club that is fighting for the Scudetto rather than in one that does not even play in the Champions League. It is a question of image.
