Andrea Pirlo has not ruled out leaving Juventus this season amid heavy speculation that he could make a move away from Serie A after spending his whole career in Italy.
The 34-year-old has been in fine form once again this year but it is unsure whether Juventus want to offer him a new deal.
Juventus’ general director Giuseppe Marotta admitted in September that the club was in no rush to negotiate a new deal for the Italian playmaker and that talks would open again in March, which is why the speculation exists.
And speaking to Rai Sport after Italy’s game against Germany yesterday, Pirlo said he would not rule anything out this summer.
“I don’t know, there’s a whole season ahead of us and we’ll talk about it at the right time. I am optimistic, always,” he said.
“I want to keep playing because I have fun and am in good shape.
“We’ll see if it’s with Juventus or another team, but I won’t rule anything out.”
Pirlo has made the same number of appearances as Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba in the league this season for Juventus and can still certainly offer a lot from his deep lying playmaker position. He has even managed to score three times in the league as well but at 34, he would be a very short term solution to our midfield problems.
There have been plenty of older players in United’s history that have had a real impact and if Juventus made it clear that Pirlo could leave, David Moyes may well be interested in adding some real experience into our midfield even if it was only for a short term period.
Would you consider Andrea Pirlo joining Manchester United a good move by David Moyes?
