Hungary's Honved are moving for Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero.
Del Piero is available after leaving Australia's Sydney FC.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs true, for the last 15-20 days we have been talking to Stefano, who is Alessandro‚Äôs brother and agent,‚ÄĚ Honved director of sport Fabio Cordella told GianlucaDiMarzio.com.
‚ÄúOur club is not economically up to the standard of these names, but the technical sponsor immediately accepted our idea and is ready to give us a big hand.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôll see what happens. It would be wonderful to bring him to Budapest. Until an hour ago everyone thought it was a made-up story. Instead we really are trying for Del Piero.
‚ÄúThe Hungarian population deserves him, because real football has been missing here for a few years.
‚ÄúThe State is helping, as there are at least seven or eight new stadiums and soon we‚Äôll start building our own too.‚ÄĚ
