Would you really want Alessandro Del Piero at Spurs? That was the unlikely suggested transfer that emerged briefly yesterday in London’s Metro newspaper amidst suggestions that the 36 year old Italian is eyeing up a move to London.
Del Piero has been with Juventus for an incredible 18 years since signing from Padova in 1993, but has been told that he can leave the club at the end of the current Italian season. He is 37 tomorrow but has maintained that he is not ready to retire.
Italy’s Tuttosport has suggested that the veteran is keen on a move to the Premiership but it seems that Metro have added in the Spurs link.
It’s not entirely clear why Tottenham’s name appeared so prominently in connection with this story but one reason could be the on-going rumours concerning David Beckham. If we’re in the market for one veteran international looking for one last big move, why not make it two?
So is it Beckham or Del Piero for you? Or maybe, it’s just neither….
