Juventus have expressed their relief after Alessandro Del Piero declared his intent to stay at the club.
The 36-year-old’s current deal expires at the end of the season and speculation has been mounting over his future.
However, Del Piero revealed via a video on his official website last week that he was set to sign a ‘blank’ contract, flatly denying that he was holding out for more money.
Juve president Andrea Agnelli has welcomed the news and is now looking forward to resuming talks with the player over an extension.
“Del Piero has shown the will to remain at Juve with that video,” said Agnelli.
“We are satisfied about this and there will be time to define his engagement with us for next year.”
