The Juventus legend was a free agent after leaving Sydney FC and considered several different options, including Hungarian club Honved.

However, last night reports emerged of a deal with Delhi Dynamos and Del Piero confirmed them via Twitter.

“I’m pleased to announce that, as of today, I am a Delhi Dynamos player and ambassador of the new Indian Super League,” wrote Del Piero.

Del Piero, 39, spent nearly two decades at Juventus, scoring 208 league goals in over 500 appearances and 50 goals in 127 continental games.

He earned 91 caps for Italy and was part of the squad which won the 2006 World Cup.

The Indian Super League is a newly-created competition, similar in style to cricket's IPL. Marquee players include former France and Juve striker David Trezeguet, ex-Liverpool winger Luis Garcia and former Spain defender Joan Capdevila.
