Alessandro Del Piero is reportedly ready to leave Sydney FC for a new career experience in Brazil with Flamengo.
According to Tuttosport, the former Juventus captain has been disappointed with Sydney’s form and the instability within the club after a change of Coach.
Just five months after his arrival in Australia’s A-League, there are reports Del Piero has been offered a new experience in Brazil.
Zico contacted the 38-year-old personally to explain the benefits of moving to Flamengo on a two-year contract.
That would also allow Del Piero to be in the country ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
Tuttosport claim brother Stefano Del Piero and intermediaries flew to Rio de Janeiro on Friday to discuss terms.
Flamengo had already shown interest in Del Piero last summer, before he opted for Sydney FC.
