Alessandro Del Piero is set to decide his next move after the A-League All Stars exhibition tie against Juventus this Sunday in Sydney.
Del Piero, who scored 24 goals across his two seasons at Sydney, finishing as the club’s top goalscorer each time, spoke of his desire to continue his playing career earlier this week.
According to sources close to Goal, the former Italy international has been the target of Indian Super League’s (ISL) Delhi Dynamos, while another franchisee has also shown an interest in him.
While there are talks of an imminent move to the cash-rich Qatar or MLS, his agent stated that his brother still remains a hot property in the summer transfer window.
“During the last [few] weeks, we have received inquiries from several teams, not only from India but also from other countries. There is a lot of interest in Alessandro,” Stefano Del Piero told Goal.
The Juve legend scored 208 goals in 513 appearances for the Serie A club and also won the World Cup in 2006, scoring against Germany in the semi-final.
With the Italian stating his intention of extending his playing career for another season, his agent mentioned that they will take stock of the situation following the weekend’s game against the Old Lady of Turin.
“We will analyse every proposal in the next few days, since, as you know, Alessandro is at this time engaged in Sydney for the game between the A-League All Stars and Juventus.”
