Pirlo: I'm too old to join Paris Saint-Germain

The 34-year-old midfielder says that he wants to spend a few more years with three-time Serie A champions Juventus and has no intention of retiring any time soon
Andrea Pirlo has dismissed rumours linking him to a move to Paris Saint-Germain, jokingly insisting that he is "too old" to join the Ligue 1 champions.

The Juventus star has been the subject of foreign interest several times in his career, as he revealed in his autobiography that he almost joined Barcelona and Real Madrid, and he was most recently among a list of players whom PSG player Thiago Motta said he would like to see join the French giants in the summer.

However, the 34-year-old hopes to spend a few more years with the Bianconeri, despite admitting that the idea of playing outside of Italy is appealing.

"It is true that I would like to try to play in another league," he told L'Equipe. "I had several opportunities in the past and I get proposals regularly.

"At the end of the day, I always end up choosing to stay in Italy. We'll see what happens in the future but I'm too old for PSG.

"I want to stay at Juventus for a few more years; I am happy here. It is a club with an ambitious project that has led to where we are now."

The midfielder, who won a third consecutive Serie A title with Juventus at the weekend, says that he does not intend to retire any time soon.

"I feel motivated to play football because it's something I love," he remarked. "I still feel pleasure in playing - I'm not tired or bored, it's fun."
