It had been thought the 35-year-old striker could retire this summer as he is yet to sign a contract extension, even though his current deal expires this summer.

However, Del Piero insists he has not had any thoughts about retiring just yet and hopes he is able to play for the foreseeable future.

Il Pinturicchio told Juventus Channel: "I hope to play for a long time and to be able to give the maximum under all aspects, then I will know when the moment to stop arrives.

"I am looking at the present and the next season. I am looking at today and next year then we'll think about it.

"Right now I am dedicated to the profession of being a player, which is what I was born to do.

"Today I am only thinking about playing then tomorrow who knows."
