Juventus have cancelled the contract of David Trezeguet by mutual consent, with the former France forward expected to join Spanish side Hércules CF.
The announcement ends a decade of service for the 32-year-old with the Bianconeri, who will play Manchester City FC, FC Salzburg and KKS Lech Poznań in UEFA Europa League Group A. In total, Trezeguet – who joined Juventus from AS Monaco FC in 2000 – scored 171 goals in 320 appearances, winning two Scudetti, two Italian Super Cups and a Serie B title.
Andrea Agnelli, the Juventus president, said: "Like all the Juve fans I have great feelings for David and his 171 goals in ten years. You don't need many comments to describe a player who scored 17 goals every season on average. It was a real love affair and David will always remain in the hearts of Juventus fans."
Trezeguet will arrive in Alicante next week to complete his move to Hércules, where he will have a medical and sign a two-year contract. He becomes the club's ninth signing of the summer following their return to the Spanish top-flight.
