Montreal Impact have now ruled themselves out of the running.
âIn January we contacted Del Piero, but the player turned us down,â director of sport Nick De Santis told TMW.
âThe player told us he prefers LA Galaxy or New York, so we took it on board and abandoned the option without coming back to it.
âThere has been no further contact, so itâs an old story. Of course, if he were to change his mind, then we certainly wouldnât slam the door in his face...â
