I tried to get Ibra and Ronaldo - Totti

AS Roma legend and current director Francesco Totti admits he tried to convince Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ronaldo Nazario to join him at the Serie A club.
Totti, 41, spent his entire career with the Giallorossi, but won the Scudetto only once, in 2001.
After scoring 307 goals in 786 games, the iconic attacker admits he was often left frustrated by the limitations of his boyhood club within the transfer market.
"I've always said you need champions to win," Totti told La Repubblica when asked about his 25-year career with the Giallorossi.
"I hoped Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, the best players in the world would come. Not just up-front, but also defenders and midfielders.
"Unfortunately we had a limit, we didn’t have the financial muscle to spend on these champions. Really, I tried to bring unthinkable people to Roma."
