Spurs target expects Juventus stay

Published Add your comment

Legendary midfielder Andrea Pirlo expects the club to extend his contract and insists he is happy at the Serie A champions, despite reported Premier League interest from Tottenham.

The 34-year-old could put pen to paper on a new deal as soon as this month in order to ward off any European interest in the playmaker.

Pirlo has been a revelation for the Turin club, winning the Serie A title in each of his two seasons so far, with the club well positioned to retain their crown this term.

His signing from rivals AC Milan raised many eyebrows in 2011, but since his arrival Juventus have gone from strength to strength and Milan have floundered somewhat, underlining "The Professor's" importance to the team.

Tottenham had reportedly offered the Italian a three-year contract back in October under Andre Villas-Boas and former Italy international Gianluca Vialli claimed that contact had been made between the North London club and Pirlo's representatives.

Vialli said: “I’ve heard rumours from England that there has been contact between Pirlo and Tottenham for next season."

However, this now looks unlikely as the 102 times capped playmaker insists his wish is to remain in Turin.
