Juventus midfielder, Andrea Pirlo could be set for a shock January move to LA Galaxy in the US MLS league. The former AC Milan player has played in Italy his whole career but despite recently signing a new two-year contract, the Galaxy are considering bringing him to the MLS.
David Beckham’s former side want him as a replacement for Landon Donovan, who announced his plans to retire at the end of the 2014 MLS season. Only last month, Pirlo said: ‘Why should I move? Serie A is the top league in Italy and life is good. Two years with Juventus, then maybe I can go to the MLS in the United States.’
But Galaxy coach Bruce Arena confirmed to ESPN: ‘We are interested in players of his calibre.’ Pirlo, a World Cup winner has 112 caps for Italy.
