San Siro man Turin bound.
Juventus have signed veteran Italian international midfielder Andrea Pirlo from AC Milan on a three-year contract, reports from Italy suggest.
According to Il Corriere dello Sport, the player’s agent met representatives of the Turin club to discuss terms, and an agreement has been confirmed.
Andrea Pirlo has long since been considered one of the most stylish midfielder’s in the game and now it seems the Italian international is ready to leave the San Siro after a decade at AC Milan, which of course followed three years at Inter Milan.
The 31 year old set piece specialist was linked with a move to Chelsea but the two time Champions League winner was clearly keen on staying in Italy rather than pursuing a move to reunite with former Rossoneri boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Pirlo moves to a Juventus who are seemingly in a continual state of disarray, Luigi Delneri was brought in during the summer after an appalling last term left the Turin side in seventh spot and look likely to finish in the same spot this season, however such a finish does not bring with it a Europa League spot this time around.
Pirlo has amassed a total of 377 appearances for AC Milan and seemed destined to leave at the end of the season having seen his first team chances greatly limited under boss Massimiliano Allegri’s reign.
