Hume City will know by Wednesday is their ambitious bid for former Juventus star David Trezeguet has been successful.

Trezeguet, 38, is in Argentina and most recently played in a Juventus charity game, but his last official match was in 2014 with Indian Super League club Pune City, the same year he played for Newell’s Old Boys in Argentina.
