Mike Piazza’s new club Reggiana could try to coax Andrea Pirlo back from New York City FC.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pirlo is the dream addition for the side in Lega Pro.
Baseball legend Piazza bought the club this month and was in Reggio-Emilia yesterday to present his project to the town amid a rapturous reception.
Pirlo would certainly attract a great deal of interest, but the veteran Italy midfielder had said he wanted New York City FC as a lifestyle choice, so is unlikely to walk away after just one year.
This week Pirlo curled in a free kick for his debut MLS goal.
