Al Ahli not in the race for Del Piero's signature

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has seemingly ruled out the possibility of him signing a new deal with the Old Lady.

The veteran trequartista, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has turned in a string of impressive cameos in recent weeks, prompting the Bianconeri faithful to start a campaign on Facebook to persuade the club's president, Andrea Agnelli, to offer the World Cup winner an extension.

However, Del Piero has seemingly resigned himself to the fact that he will be leaving Turin in the summer.

"You have all been fantastic in my final games with the team," the 37-year-old forward wrote on his Facebook profile.

"For us, these have been nights to remember and victories that have psyched us up for the final title push."

Del Piero, who has been linked with moves to China, the United States and Japan, joined Juve from Padova in 1993 and is the club's most-capped player and all-time record goalscorer.
