Antonio Cassano – after leaving Sampdoria in 2017 – was offered the chance to star in a porn movie by famous Italian porn actor Rocco Siffredi.
The hot-headed Italian has claimed to have slept with between 600-700 women during his early footballing days, however, he tied the know with Carolina Marcialis in 2010.
But that didn't stop Siffredi – aptly known as 'the Italian Stallion' – from offering Cassano the chance to star in one of his movies.
Cassano was entering the final days of his playing days when the offer came in – however, he ultimately turned it down and spent one more season in football.
Siffredi posted an online video, from Budapest, where he said: "Cassano has said several times that he has been with 3,000 women, so my proposal may not be a problem."
The adult movie star has stared in over 600 films, and he has directed over 300.
He continued: "I would choose him immediately for one of my movies. He is number one. Puglia Malena is awaiting him."
Siffredi is then joined by a naked Malena – real name Filomena Mastomarino – "Malena is waiting for you, do not leave me alone with her," he finished.
What did you make of Cassano as a player? Let us know in the comments section
Cassano was once considered a teenage prodigy; he burst onto the scene in 1999 – for his native Bari – when he controlled a 40-yard-ping with his heel, made Laurent Blanc and Christian Panucci look like amateurs and slotted the ball home.
It convinced then-Roma boss Fabio Capello to make him the worlds most expensive teenager in 2001, when he moved to Roma for £26million.
However, he clashed with 'the King' Francesco Totti, and his career never hit the highs it had once promised.
But that's not to say he wasn't successful, Cassano turned out for Real Madrid, and he earned himself 39 national team appearances and netted 10 goals in the process.
Cassano turned down Siffredi's offer, and for a while, it looked like he may take his talents to the burgeoning Chinese Super League.
Instead, he ended up at Hellas Verona – and seven days later announced his retirement – but, in a dramatic u-turn, he was convinced to stay and went on to make two appearances in friendlies.
But that's all he managed, and he left the club soon after with Verona's president stating: "his head isn’t right."
Cassano then promptly announced his retirement – for the second time that summer – and hung up his boots for good.

It's unknown if Cassano ever responded to Siffredi's request, what is known, however, is he didn't appear in any adult movies.
"If I'd had another head on my shoulders, I could've been playing on Mars. I'd be like Lionel Messi, Neymar and few others," Cassano reflected, on his career, in his autobiography.
