Milan put Pirlo future on hold

Milan won't make a decision on the future of Andrea Pirlo until the campaign has come to an end, says Massimiliano Allegri.

The Rossoneri playmaker has just a matter of months left on his agreement and is reportedly being chased by clubs such as Juventus, Chelsea and Roma.

"This is not the time to be talking about such things," Milan boss Allegri said when quizzed on the contract situation of the 2006 World Cup winner.

"The club will sit down with the player at the end of the season and decide what to do."

It's understood that Milan would consider offering Pirlo a new deal, but not at the figures his agent has allegedly requested.

Pirlo, who will be 32 later this month, has been with the Diavolo since his surprise 2001 move from city rivals Inter.

Milan, who beat Bologna at the weekend, are just one point away from winning the Italian championship.

Rossoneri owner Silvio Berlusconi was at San Siro this weekend and spent 45 minutes with the squad after the game to show his appreciation for their efforts.
