Andrea Pirlo Future in the 2015/2016 Season

New York City FC are in pole position to sign Andrea Pirlo with the Juventus star set to choose the MLS side over Sydney FC. It is understood several representatives from Australia were due to meet with Pirlo’s agent in Milan yesterday to put forward the idea of the veteran midfielder playing in the national competition.

Juve coach MassimilianoAllegri admitted he was unsure of Pirlo’s future in the aftermath of Saturday’s defeat to Barcelona saying: “As far as Pirlo is concerned, I can’t give you an answer I’m afraid.”

The Sky Blues are one of the few clubs in the A-League who could afford to pay the exorbitant money required to lure the likes of Pirlo to Australia. Beaten A-League grand finalists Sydney FC have emerged as the favoured candidate to snare him if he decides to come to Australia.

The Sky Blues are one of the few clubs in the A-League who could afford to pay the exorbitant money required to lure the likes of Pirlo to Australia. A move to Australia is probably a long shot, but that is what they said about Alessandro Del Piero when he was first linked with Sydney FC in 2012. The Italian great ended up playing with Sydney FC, earning a staggering $8 million for his two-season stint.

Meanwhile, Pirlo, 36, who was in tears after Juventus’ Champions League final defeat to Barcelona on Saturday, has been offered a deal by NYCFC to continue his career in America after 20 years in Italy. NYCFC could face competition for Pirlo’s signature with Sydney FC also making an approach for the veteran midfielder as they hope to lure him to Australia’s A-League.

Pirlo joined Juve from AC Milan in 2011 and has since helped the Turin club dominate Italian football, winning four successive Serie A titles.

Pirlo will leave Turin this summer to begin a new adventure abroad, and his signing would be a major coup for NYCFC and MLS if they can secure his signature ahead of other clubs.

New York City FC are in pole position to sign Andrea Pirlo with the Juventus star set to choose the MLS side over Sydney FC. The move would see the Italian playmaker link up with Frank Lampard in the NYCFC midfield, and would provide a welcome boost to the franchise after a difficult start to life in MLS. NYCFC would be able to sign Pirlo under the Designated Player Rule, which was first brought in when David Beckham joined LA Galaxy in 2007.
