Chelsea transfer gossip
The Italian midfielder is looking set to quit Juve at the end of this season, with the Champions League final against Barcelona perhaps looking like being his last game for the club.
The 36-year-old has enjoyed a highly distinguished career for club and country, winning the Champions League twice during his time with previous club AC Milan, as well as four consecutive Serie A titles with current side Juventus.
Despite his age, Pirlo is attracting strong interest from the Premier League, with the Metro claiming both Liverpool and Chelsea have held talks with his agent over a possible summer switch.
MLS giants New York City FC are also interested in the cultured playmaker, but it may be that he will get the chance of one more move to a big club before the end of his career.
