Spanish media claim that Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has accepted an offer from MLS side New York City FC.
AS claims that Saturday’s Champions League final against Barcelona will be the 36-year-old’s final game for the Old Lady before a move to the USA.
The Spanish newspaper claims that the MLS side turned to Pirlo after Xavi turned them down in favour of a move to Qatari side Al-Sadd.
Pirlo has been strongly linked with a move away from Turin this summer and the Bianconeri have already begun reinforcing their midfield with the expected signing of Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira.
The playmaker spoke on Monday of how he believes Barca are favourites for Saturday’s final, which he described as “a unique and special game”.
