Andrea Pirlo urged to make Premier League move

Manchester United and Chelsea are among the Premier League clubs handed a potential transfer boost in the race to sign Andrea Pirlo.

The Italian legend is out of contract with Juventus at the end of the season, and a host of clubs have been linked with signature.

Indeed, the Red Devils, Blues, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked.

And, former Juventus and Italy star Marco Tardelli believes a move to the Premier League would be ideal for Pirlo, who is yet to ply his trade outside of Serie ‘A’.

"Andrea is special and always decisive. It is not only with his free kicks he is good, if he plays well the whole team improves,” he told Tuttosport.

"Andrea is a special player. I would advise him to try to play in the Premier League. It would be a sight to see him play in England."

Fans in England will certainly agree, and if any of the aforementioned clubs can pull of the signing, then it would be a major transfer coup.

Indeed, Manchester United manager David Moyes is still looking to put his stamp on the champions after replacing Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm.

The Scot had a summer window to forget, missing a number of high-profile Red Devils targets before bringing Marouane Fellaini to Old Trafford.

Yet to find a true replacement for Paul Scholes, the 34-year-old could be the answer for Manchester United, creating chances from a slightly deeper position.

Chelsea won’t let their rivals have a transfer race all their own way however, and would certainly welcome some midfield experience in west London.

The Blues have generally added young players to their ranks in recent times, with owner Roman Abramovich looking to build for the future at Stamford Bridge.

However, Pirlo would offer manager Jose Mourinho plenty in a 4-2-3-1 formation, and could be the man to help make Chelsea tick consistently next season.

Time will tell as to what the legend decides to do with his future.
