Pirlo leaving AC Milan this summer


Milan have had to bid adieu to star playmaker Andrea Pirlo after the Italian decided it was time to move on in his career and declined a renewal offer from the Rossoneri.

Pirlo who joined Milan in 2001 told reporters yesterday that his time with the league winners was done. He turns 32 today and the Rossoneri have paid him a tribute on their official website.

“For us, he’ll never be an opponent,” these words of team-mate Filippo Inzaghi and club CEO Adriano Galliani are used to commemorate Pirlo's time with the Rossoneri.


Pirlo also commented on his departure from Milan: "I am leaving after 10 unforgettable years. It's a consensual divorce, but I have not spoken with Juventus. I am here to say goodbye."

The Italian has won two Scudetti, two Champions Leagues, an Italian Cup as well as the Club World Cup during his time with Milan. He was also with the club during Italy's World Cup win in 2006.

It is generally thought around the peninsula that Pirlo will be joining Juventus in the coming summer. However, there have been reports linking him with a move to England in particular, Chelsea and Manchester City.

While Pirlo failed to renew his contract, two other veterans Filippo Inzaghi and Alessandro Nesta have both extended their tenures by a year each. The future of Clarence Seedorf is yet to be resolved.
