Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has confirmed that he has plans to leave Italy at the end of the current season, with Premier League and MLS clubs on red alert.
The 35-year-old has recently given an exclusive interview about his future and he dropped a massive hint that he could be ready to quit Juve and face one last challenge before retiring from the game.
The Italian international has been at Juventus for four years after leaving AC Milan, during which time he has won four Serie A titles, with the latest coming this weekend for The Old Lady. Pirlo has made over 100 league appearances for Juventus and is now considering his next step in his career with the Premier League and MLS interested.
Pirlo has proven that he can still perform at the highest level and in a recent interview with AS, he revealed his plans are to leave Juventus at the end of the season.
However, he refused to highlight where he wants to end up next season and reassured Juve fans that his full focus is only on his current club.
"Ending my Juventus story by pocketing the Champions League would be a dream come true," he told AS.
"But I won’t stop playing, I’ll go on as long as I have the same great desire to keep training every day.
"But I wouldn’t go to another Italian team. Juventus will be my last Serie A team, whatever happens.
"MLS could be an idea but for the moment, I don’t have anything, Juve are the only thing on my mind."
The Premier League would potentially give Pirlo the biggest test to end his career, but teams in the MLS are far more likely to be willing to offer him long-term contracts.
Juventus were crowned Serie A champions yet again over the weekend and will now try to win the Champions League after overcoming Real Madrid in the first-leg of their semi-final tie last night.
