Del Piero waiting for Juve

Alessandro Del Piero has yet to be officially told by Juventus that they would like to extend his contract.

The veteran's deal expires in the summer and although the club have intimated that they want to keep the 36-year-old, nothing formal has been offered.

"We've waited until the transfer window closed because it was right to give Juventus the serenity needed at this stage of the season," Stefano Del Piero, the player's agent and brother, told Ansa.

"There will soon be a number of exploratory meetings and in the first we will be told by Juventus what their intentions are.

"Alessandro has decided that he wants to stay, but it will depend on the club to define how that will happen.

"If Juventus don't intend to continue with Alessandro then we would be disappointed, but we would take note of that fact with mutual respect."

It's expected that Juve will offer the Italian international a one-year contract extension which will possibly include a clause for him to become a future director.
