A special day for Del Piero

Alessandro Del Piero has fuelled speculation that he'll sign a new contract on Thursday. "Today is a special day," said the Juventus ace.

With that brief message, the Bianconeri icon has perhaps confirmed last night's rumours that he's finally agreed new terms with the Old Lady.

Widespread reports in the peninsula suggest that after months of talks, he will put pen to paper on a new one-year deal with the outfit.

Del Piero's current contract expires in June.

Del Piero's brother, Stefano, met with Juventus director general Beppe Marotta yesterday to finalise the details.

May 5 is an historic day in the club's history anyway, seeing as it is the date when Juve pipped Inter and Roma to the Scudetto in 2002.
