Del Piero-Sydney talks continue

Talks between Alessandro Del Piero and Sydney FC will continue after another meeting on Monday evening.

Officials from the Australian club have now touched down in Italy for face-to-face discussions with the No 10’s agent.

“Sydney remain a possibility,” Stefano Del Piero, Alex’s brother, stated. “There are a few issues that we still need to elaborate on and we’ll continue talking.”

Sydney suggested that a deal for the calcio icon had been wrapped up last week, but the 37-year-old has since put on the brakes.

The forward, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, is available on a free transfer after ending his 19-year career at Juventus in the summer.

Sydney FC official Tony Pignata will remain in Italy and a new round of talks could take place as soon as this evening.

Celtic, Southampton, Sporting Braga and Sion have also been linked with the forward.
