Alessandro Del Piero has revealed he dreams of playing in the Premier League before the end of his illustrious career.

The Juventus legend has been at the club for 18 years having signed from Padova in 1993 and is their all-time leading scorer and also record appearance holder.

The 37-year-old was expected to retire when his current deal with Juve expires at the end of the season.

The Turin club will not be offering the striker a new deal, but the Italian has no intention of retiring.

He told France Football: "I have to confess a secret. I love the Premier League.

"What a great league. Of course I would like to play there before retiring."
