5.- Alessandro del Piero

‘Pinturicchio’ was one of the most coveted players in the world when he was in his prime.

We are talking about one of the most exquisite forwards in Italian football history, and he rejected several clubs.

He lived through a similar situation that Gianluigi Buffon did during the Caciopoli era.

Players such as Fabio Cannavaro or Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to jump ship, but not Del Piero.

The forward received a very lucrative offer from FC Barcelona that he rejected, his reason was fairly simple.

Juventus was his home, and he wasn’t going to leave them hanging during their most difficult time.
