Andrea Pirlo has been so impressed by Italy teammate Giuseppe Rossi that he urged Juventus to sign him. “It would be wonderful.”
The veteran midfielder has only just joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer after 10 years at Milan, but there are reports he could be joined by Villarreal talent ‘Pepito.'
“It would be wonderful to see Rossi at Juventus,” said Pirlo. “He is a great player and proved that in the last few seasons.
“I hope that he can join a top club and I'm sure wherever he goes that he will be successful.”
Rossi is just one of the many transfer targets for Juve, including Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez and Gokhan Inler.
“In order to match Milan in the Scudetto race, we need to buy champions, find some consistency and a project that targets victory. We have everything it takes to achieve that and Juventus will have a great year.
“The decision to leave Milan was entirely mutual. I had fantastic years with the Rossoneri and won everything it was possible to win, but I wanted a new challenge.”
