Leading agent backing Juventus great Del Piero to make MLS move

Italian player agent Antonio Caliendo is tipping Alessandro Del Piero to move to the USA after his Juventus days are up.

The veteran striker is likely to be released by the Bianconeri at the end of the season and Caliendo told Goal.com that he will be well-suited to finish his brilliant career playing Major League Soccer.

"Well, if it was up to him, he would have continued at Juventus," he said.

"So, now, I think that Del Piero is carefully considering his alternatives. Personally, I think MLS would be ideal for him because there he could display his immense talent.

"Think of people like [David] Beckham, who, thanks to MLS, has managed to extend his great career, bringing significant revenue to the entire US soccer movement and also himself.

"A player of the caliber of Del Piero would be suited to MLS."
