River Plate are laying out the welcome mat for Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero.

Del Piero opened the door to playing in Argentina last week, where former Juve teammate David Trezeguet is now enjoying a career swansong.

River president Nestor Sivori declared: "Alessandro, you must come to River.

"In this part of the world there is another great derby against Boca Juniors. Argentina will love to see him here."
