Inter are being linked with a shock loan move for New York City FC’s Andrea Pirlo.
The midfielder moved to MLS after ending his four-year spell at Juventus this summer, having helped the Bianconeri to the Scudetto in each season.
The regular season in Major League Soccer runs March to October, so it’s common for players to have loan spells in Europe during the off-season.
According to SportMediaset, Inter Coach Roberto Mancini is keen on bringing Pirlo back to the Nerazzurri on a short-term loan, with his side lacking midfield creativity.
The Beneamata famously sold the regista to city rivals Milan in 2001, with Dražen Brnčić moving in the opposite direction.
Pirlo went on to win two Scudetti and two Champions League with the Rossoneri, before being released and joining Juve.
