Hungary's Honved are moving for Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero.
Del Piero is available after leaving Australia's Sydney FC.
â€śItâ€™s true, for the last 15-20 days we have been talking to Stefano, who is Alessandroâ€™s brother and agent,â€ť Honved director of sport Fabio Cordella told GianlucaDiMarzio.com.
â€śOur 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.
â€śWeâ€™ll 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.
â€śThe Hungarian population deserves him, because real football has been missing here for a few years.
â€śThe State is helping, as there are at least seven or eight new stadiums and soon weâ€™ll start building our own too.â€ť
