This transfer window has already seen Stoke linked with an audacious move for Ronaldinho, so never rule out the most outlandish of tales from appearing online and in the written press!
Today’s brilliant transfer rumour comes from The Scottish Sun, who claim Italy legend Alessandro Del Piero “wants to sign for Celtic.”
It is of course, given further embellishment with Del Piero decked out in green and white hoops on the back of the Scottish Sun!
Del Piero was offered the chance to play for Celtic two years ago, but instead opted for Sydney FC in the A-League.
Now the Juventus and Azzurri legend has left Australia and is available on a free transfer.
Del Piero is quoted as saying: “Two years ago it was interesting and it would be interesting again. If we could talk then great. If you want I’ll give you my phone number and you can pass it on! Celtic are a great team and I’ve always enjoyed playing in Scotland so who knows?”
He added: “We were in contact with Celtic but it didn’t come to anything. But I was very interested in moving to Scotland.”
Would take Del Piero to play for even 15 mins just to get his name on a Celtic shirt!

Alessandro Del Piero says he has one season left and wants to play for Celtic. Final season wage packet? He is 39.

Del Piero wants to come to Celtic. That would be a fantastic move….10 years ago. No Ta.

I see the Del Piero to Celtic rumours are back…this time with supposed quotes from the player himself. He's older than Ronny Deila.
