Alessandro Del Piero is reportedly ready to put pen to paper on a new contract with Juventus.
The captain's current deal expires on June 30 and negotiations have been dragged on to this late stage.
According to the latest reports from Turin, Del Piero has reached a basic agreement for a one-year extension.
It will provide €1m per season – a massive drop from the €4m he earns at the moment.
There will also be clauses and performance-related bonus elements to the deal.
Del Piero has been with the Bianconeri since joining their youth academy in 1993 and will turn 37 in November.
