Alessandro Del Piero: In talks with Olympiakos, according to his agent
Italy legend Alessandro Del Piero is in talks with Greek side Olympiakos over a possible move, his agent has confirmed.
The veteran forward's future has been the subject of intense speculation this summer following his exit from Juventus after a decorated 19-year stint.
He had appeared poised for a switch to Australian A-League side Sydney FC last week but Olympiakos could hijack that move.
According to reports in Greece, the club have offered the 37-year-old free agent a one-year contract worth €2.2million, with the option for another 12 months.
Del Piero, who has also been linked with Celtic, Swiss club FC Sion and even troubled Liverpool, is in negotiations with the Greek double holders, according to his brother and representative Stefano.
The agent also revealed the seasoned forward's future will be wrapped up shortly one way or another.
Stefano said: "At this moment, I can't say anything more than that we are in contact.
"Be patient. It is a matter of hours before we see if Alessandro will play for Olympiakos or not."
