Juventus icon Del Piero drops MLS hint as Premier League take back seat

Alessandro Del Piero's brother and agent Stefano has revealed that the veteran striker will not be heading to the English Premier League.

The 37-year old has departed Juventus after almost 20 years with the Turin club with plenty of reports suggesting he was set to continue his extensive career in England's top flight.

But Stefano Del Piero has hinted that the former Italy ace could be on his way to either Spain, Brazil or North America's Major League Soccer.

"There aren't any concrete offers at the moment, but there are a lot of different situations we are considering," he told

"Everything is under consideration. The most important thing is not the level of the championship that he will play in, but the project which is presented to us.

"Malaga, Flamengo or the USA? Alessandro has always said that the USA fascinates him very much."
