There are reports Inter President Erick Thohir wants to sign Alessandro Del Piero for his MLS club DC United.
The ex-Juventus legend is considering his future at Sydney FC and said he’s determined to play on for at least another year.
Meanwhile, Australian media claim Sydney have only offered Del Piero a contract extension if he joins the club staff or even becomes the new Coach.
He is most likely to head for America with several Major League Soccer clubs very eager to snap up Pinturicchio.
According to the latest reports from Italy, DC United are leading the race for Del Piero thanks to the efforts of patron Thohir – who is also President of Serie A side Inter.
They play their football in Washington DC and could be helped by Adidas, who sponsor the team.
