Andrea Pirlo: MLS could be an idea

Despite sources telling Goal USA a move to NYCFC is unlikely, the Italian said he could leave Juventus after the season.

Juventus star Andrea Pirlo says he's focused on Juventus' Champions League final meeting with Barcelona but would consider leaving the club as a champion with MLS a potential destination.

"Yes, if we win it, I might move abroad because Juventus will be my last team in Italy," Pirlo told the Times of India. "The MLS could be an idea, but for the moment I don't have any thought about it; Juve is the only thing on my mind."

The comments come after a report in Spanish newspaper AS linked Pirlo with a move to New York City FC. Despite these reports, sources told Goal USA's Ives Galarcep rumors of Pirlo joining NYCFC are "definitely nonsense."

"No. I won't stop playing," he said. "I'll go on as long as I have the same great desire to keep training every day."

Pirlo, 36, has collected numerous Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles in his stints with Milan and Juventus and also won the 2006 World Cup with Italy.
