It may feel as though Italian international Andrea Pirlo has been around forever, but he’s not as old as you may think. The playmaker is a mere 31-years-old and has plenty to offer any team that comes in with an offer for his services.
It’s somewhat surprising then, that thus far there has been little noise from the Premier League concerning the possible acquisition of Pirlo when his contract with AC Milan ends in the summer. The team thought to be closest to acquiring his services at the moment is Juventus, but it’s still anybody’s guess where the Italian will end up.
By now we know what Pirlo has to offer: peerless creativity, a widJoe range of passing as well as a mastery over deadball situations. He is the ultimate playmaker and would improve any team that he joined. Furthermore, Pirlo has a huge amount of experience and has won a stupendous amount of silverware. He played a vital role in Italy winning the 2006 World Cup, and has won two Champions Leagues with AC Milan, two UEFA Super Cups and the 2004 Serie A title.
The man is a born winner. Pirlo may have struggled this season with injury, but it’s clear that he’s still got what it takes to perform at the top level. Clubs in the Premier League would be foolish to ignore his presence in the transfer window this summer. If he could be persuaded to leave Italy, it would be wonderful to see him in the Premier League.
