Juve rule out Del Piero exit

Posted on 05/11/2010


Juventus have laughed off speculation that Alessandro Del Piero could end his career with rivals Milan.

Rossoneri owner Silvio Berlusconi this week invited the Italian legend to join the San Siro outfit before he retired.

“Del Piero to Milan? I don’t think so,” explained Bianconeri transfer guru Beppe Marotta. 

“The fact that Berlusconi rates him so much is a testament to the player, but Del Piero won’t play in a Milan shirt.”

The almost 36-year-old has less than a year left on his current deal and he recently admitted that he would remain in Turin or move abroad.

“His [agent] brother has said that Alex is and will be a Juventus player,” Marotta continued. “There will soon be a meeting around a table with President Andrea Agnelli.

“The new stadium will be ready next season and if Del Piero hopes to play there then there will be no problems.”
