Andrea Pirlo on new Juventus contract: 'We are close'

Apr 6, 9:27 AM

Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has long maintained his desire to remain with the Italian champions beyond the end of his current contract, which is due to expire in June.

In lockstep with that sentiment, the Juventus brass have on numerous occassions attempted to quell any speculation that the bearded maestro will be heading elsewhere, claiming that a new contract for the 34-year-old is just a matter of time.

Pirlo, who has garnered (well-deserved) plaudits from all angles during his spell at the club, confirmed Saturday that he is on the verge of signing a new deal.

FOX Soccer has the details:

"We are close," he told Italian radio station Radio Dee Jay. "We are waiting only for the right moment to meet and to decide everything. I think I am able to for another few years at this level. When I don't see myself at the top, I'll be the first to know. But whilst I feel good, I'll continue playing."

The coolest man on the planet also did his best to dispell rumors that he has been in conversation with other clubs over a possible transfer in the summer.

"Real Madrid? I've never spoken to them. I talk with (Madrid manager) Carlo Ancelotti, but we talk about other things. I feel good here.

"Would I go back to Milan? No, not now. I did what I had to do there," he added. "I'm happy to be at Juve. I think that players don't have to go back to where they once did good things. I hope to remain here."

Tottenham are in talks with Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo over a move to North London next summer, according to former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli. 

Pirlo's contract with Juventus expires in June and his future in Turin is uncertain. Juventus manager Antonio Conte is under contract until 2015. 

In an interview with  Sky Italia, Vialli indicated a move to White Hart Lane could be in Pirlo's future. “I heard the rumours from London that there are contacts between Pirlo and Tottenham for next season,” Vialli said, via the London Evening Standard. 

In his autobiography, Pirlo said he came close to joining Chelsea seven years go. “I had already reached an agreement with Chelsea, then after Berlusconi intervened and I stayed at Milan. I was also very close with Capello at Real Madrid and nearly joined them in 2006.”

Report: Andrea Pirlo could move to Premier League in January

Sep 25, 10:12 AM

Andrea Pirlo could move to the Premier League in January according to the Daily Mail. 

John Edwards reports contract talks between Pirlo and and Juventus have not developed and the veteran is effectively on a 'three month trial', as Juventus manager Antonio Conte decides whether the Italian maestro merits a new contract.

The 34-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season. Edwards reports Juventus would consider releasing him from his contract in January if the two sides are unable to work out a deal. 

Edwards goes on to state Pirlo would then seek a fresh start abroad, with England and Spain his top choices. 

A chance to start would be the biggest factor in where Pirlo would decide to go.
