The Italian legend faces his old team for the A-League All-Stars in Sydney on Sunday and spoke of his fondness for the Turin-based club.

Del Piero also gave president Andrea Agnelli some advice on the Vidal situation, with reports suggest Manchester United have offered £45m for the Chile midfielder.


“Juve’s value will be decided by what they can build now, the objectives they set themselves and how the transfer market pans out," said Del Piero. “Obviously, I am thinking of Vidal. It’s not that he is irreplaceable, but a great deal does change if he’s there or not.

“If you do decide to sell, then you need to spend that money wisely. You have to buy someone just as strong, although probably a pair of players, seeing as Vidal runs for two.

“His departure would change the balance of the team, even though a midfield with Pirlo, Marchisio and Pogba would still be very impressive."
