Pirlo’s Juventus future in doubt after Conte exit to leave Tottenham on alert

first_img Andrea Pirlo Tottenham and the rest of the Premier League could be on red alert amid rumours, coming from Italy, that Andrea Pirlo could be made available for transfer.Antonio Conte announced his resignation as Juve boss this week, following three consecutive Serie A titles, after falling out with the club over transfer strategy.And the man being tipped to replace him is former AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri, who Pirlo claims forced him out of the club in 2011.After the switch, Pirlo said: “Milan offered me a one-year extension, but I wanted three years because I was younger than the other players whose contracts were expiring.“But the real reason behind why I left Milan was because Allegri wanted to use Massimo Ambrosini or Mark van Bommel in front of the defence instead of me. That meant that I had to change position on the pitch. So I said ‘no thanks’ to Milan and chose Juventus.“Milan decided that I was no longer useful to them. I understood that immediately during our meeting.”Spurs were credited with a strong interest in the Italy playmaker, 35, last season and the rest of the Premier League will be interested, especially after his masterful performance against England in the World Cup. 1last_img
