Del Piero nears new Juventus contract

Alessandro Del Piero is close to agreeing a new contract with Juventus, according to stories in the Italian media.
Tuttosport are reporting that the veteran striker could pen a new deal as early as Tuesday, although many expect an announcement to be made on Thursday, on the basis that both parties can reach an agreement.
Before the weekend’s 3-1 victory over Cagliari, Giuseppe Marotta confirmed that talks were on-going and that is was only a matter of discussing personal terms.
“The door is open but as soon as we sit down and talk, the main issue will be the economic one,” Marotta said.
Del Piero himself has recently stated that he and the club both wish to continue their long relationship, stating:
“The president, Andrea Agnelli, and I have met a couple of times since the beginning of the year and the club have shown their willingness to continue the working relationship of respect and trust which have characterised all my years at Juventus. I am therefore confident about the outcome.”
The same report believes that signing a one-year extension will mean the Juve legend accepts a cut in wages. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
