La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A transfer news: Totti returns, Douglas Costa to Juventus, Verratti to Barcelona

FRANCESCO Totti confirmed his retirement on Monday, with the Roma legend announcing he will take a director role at the Serie A club.

The 40-year-old played his final game for Roma in May after 24 years with the capital-city side, and decided to call it a day despite being linked with possible moves to Japan and the United States.

“The first part of my life as a football player is over and now another more important one is about to begin,” Totti wrote on his Facebook page.

“Until May 28 I only thought about playing football, having fun and making a significant contribution to the team. Now I move on, I’m turning over a new leaf.”
