Italian soccer legend, Alessandro Del Piero has revealed he is still open to a move to MLS after two successful seasons with Sydney FC in Australia.

Del Piero recently spoke to Sky about what the future holds for the 39 year old striker and it appears that playing in the United States could be a realistic option.

He said: "“My future? I’ve heard from Japan, America and other places but nothing is yet decided. We will see, maybe I’ll look for something during the World Cup.”

The forward who has scored 27 times for Italy could be interested in a move to Japan with Guangzhou Evergrande who are now under the managership of Marcelo Lippi, Del Piero's old Juventus coach.

DC United are rumored to be among the most interested MLS teams should Del Piero decide on a switch to America.

MLS have attempted to distance themselves from becoming a 'retirement-league' for ageing stars looking for one last contract, but it is possible that Del Piero could contribute for a team somewhere in the league.

Del Piero has played for the past two years in Australia with Sydney FC, scoring 24 goals in 42 appearances.
