Arsenal and Manchester United target Andrea Pirlo has ruled out the possibility of sealing a move to the Premier League.

Pirlo is set to become a free agent in the summer but has revealed he is keen on seeing out his career at Juventus.

The 34-year-old has been linked with a move to a host of Premier League sides - including Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United - but wants to retire in Italy.

Speaking to Sky Italia, Pirlo said on speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League: "I though many times in previous years about being able to play overseas.

"But I came here [Juventus] where I feel good.

"I think this is the best place for me to be."

News of Pirlo's reluctance to leave Italy will come as a major blow to fans of the Premier League who were keen on seeing the veteran playmaker spraying balls around in the top-flight of English football.

The creative midfielder, who has spent his entire career in Italy, has been highly sought-after in recent years because of his superb composure on the ball.

Pirlo is likely to play a major role for Italy at the World Cup in the summer - with the Azzurri scheduled to take on England in their opening fixture in Brazil.
