Roma is offering a new contract to Rossi

Daniele de Rossi is about to sign a new one-year contract with Roma, reports Sky Sports.
The 33-year-old player has spent his entire career with the team of the Wolves but his current agreement with the club expires at the end of next month. This led to a speculation that Inter Milan is ready to take the soccer player as a free agent.
The new sporting director of the Romans Monchi, however, has given the green light for an extending the contract by one year. During this period, de Rossi will receive 4 million euros in salary, which is 1 million euros less than the proposed amount by Inter Milan.
If the midfielder decides to stay at his current team, then most likely he will be the captain of the team in the next season, after he is currently the second choice after Francesco Totti, for whom that is going to be his last campaign for Roma.

Totti: `My biggest triumph is the loyalty to Roma!`

Francesco Totti admitted that he could have won a lot of trophies elsewhere, but he chose to remain at Roma and it was worth it. The 40-year-old captain of the Wolves made his debut for the club in March 1993 and played 782 matches. During this period, the Prince of Rome won the Scudetto only once and twice the Cup of Italy.
`My debut was a dream come true.`, recalls Totti. `As a fan of Roma, debuting for the team was my big dream. Not to mention being the captain of the team. It is an amazing responsibility. As a kid, I had a dream to wear the shirt of Roma and to never give up the idea. `
`Rome is the most beautiful city in the world. You can always be surprised by something new. A corner or a detail. As a Roman and a Roma player, it is an honor for me to finish my career here. Certainly, I could win many trophies elsewhere, but my greatest triumph is to keep loyalty to Roma.`, Totti said.
The Prince of Rome was asked and how the game has changed from his debut so far. `The rhythm is completely different, the intensity is another. The physical aspect yields to the technical. But I would say that this is a natural progression for me. The experience I have gained over the years, helped me a lot.`
`The language of football is universal, but I think the physical aspect took precedence in the past 10 years. It used to be easier to use the technique to get out of a difficult situation. Tactics are different.`, added Totti.

Mourinho is persuading Sanchez to join Manchester United

The Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has conducted a telephone conversation with the star of Arsenal`s Alexis Sanchez. The Portuguese national had tried to persuade the striker to play at the Old Trafford in the summer, reported the press.
It is almost certain that Sanchez will leave the Emirates after the end of the season, and the rising interest in him makes sense.
Manchester United will have to battle with a terrible city rival Manchester City for the signature of the soccer player, and also the French Paris Saint-Germain is interested in the footballer.
However, it is not yet clear what are the intentions of Sanchez, as many people claim that his desire is to remain on the island, but there is still an option for him to play outside of England.

Football Tips - 04.04.2017

Manchester United vs. Everton
Manchester United showed a strong and constant form as the latter loss of the teams for the Championship was in the October month. The good games of the team in recent times made it climb to the fifth position, but being only four points away from the top four. Everton lost their last two visits (against Liverpool and Tottenham) and made draws in the two previous matches according 11livegoal.com (Middlesbrough and Stoke City). There are enough prerequisites to expect a loss for them today. Our soccer forecast is 1.

Leicester vs. Sunderland
Leicester looks reborn after the change of the coach and now the team is in a series of five consecutive wins. So now the danger of a relegation for the team from relegation seems quite distant since it was a completely real perspective only a month ago. However, the relegation seems almost certain to the last Sunderland. The guests have had only one point in the last five games and they continue to `sink` deeper. Our football prediction is 1.

Watford vs. West Bromwich Albion
There are good odds for a draw in that match between the two teams, who in practice do not fight for anything anymore. The guests are a little ahead in the standings and generally show better games, but that is due mainly to their home games. As guests, they have had three draws and one loss in their last four games. It seems that both teams will be satisfied with a draw. Our soccer prediction is X.

Burnley vs. Stoke City
And here the situation is similar as in the previous match - both teams would have been happy with one point, the guests seem better, but the home advantage of Burnley evens things out. Our football forecast is X.

Napoli vs Real Madrid

Today, Napoli is going to welcome the team of Real Madrid in a rematch from the eighth-finals of the Champions League. Check out our soccer prediction.
Real Madrid is in Naples with the best lineup Zinedine Zidane may have. The team`s stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale missed the 4:1 victory over Eibar in La Liga over the weekend, so they are more than ready for the difficult visit.
The Spaniards won the first encounter with 3:1, but are aware that the fans in Italy will create a hell at the `San Paolo`. Lorenzo Insigne was given a surprise advance of Napoli to the Bernabeu, but with goals from Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Casemiro, Real managed to provide a good basis for ranking in the quarterfinals.
The Napoli coach Maurizio Sari confirmed that Dries Mertens will lead the team, although he received a bruise in the 2:1 victory over Roma. Allan is questionable for the match and all the other players ofSari will be at his disposal.
Ronaldo got a break against Eibar because of the bruise, but Zidane confirmed that it is `nothing serious`. Bale endured the first of his three-match suspension. Kroos, Dani Carvajal, and Marcelo, who also got a break over the weekend, are likely to return to the team.
Our soccer forecast by baseball-predictions.com is 1.
