Premier League giants to miss out on Andrea Pirlo

A host of leading Premier League clubs look set to miss out on the signature of Italian veteran Andrea Pirlo, according to the Daily Star.

Pirlo's contract at Juventus is set to expire in at the end of the season, and his future has been the subject of speculation over the past few months.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham are all rumoured to be interested in securing his services.

Tottenham appear to be the most keen, with some reports suggesting they have offered the 34-year-old a three-year deal to swap the Juventus Stadium for White Hart Lane.

However the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United look set to be disappointed in their pursuit of Pirlo - with the Daily Star linking him with a shock move back to AC Milan.

The Italian international left the San Siro on a free in 2011 after Milan failed to offer him a contract extension - but could now get him back in the same manner if the Star is to be believed.

The paper claim that Pirlo wants a two-year deal worth £3.35m a year, and the guarantee of a first team spot, something he is unlikely to get at Chelsea, Arsenal or Manchester United.

Reports from Italy last week claimed that Juventus were actually lining up a new two-year deal for Pirlo in order to keep him from the clutches of Tottenham.

The Star also claim that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are keeping an eye on Pirlo.
