  1. Andrea Pirlo's contract with Juventus expires until June 2016, but the veteran midfield maestro is already planning his future. In an interview with Today Online after scoring twice on the Singapore Selection, Pirlo suggested a move to MLS is in his plans.

  2. "Two more years with Juventus, then maybe I will move to the MLS in the United States."

  3. Pirlo doesn't know football outside of Italy. He has spent almost 20 years playing in Serie A and never has he ventured to move outside of his home country.

    The 35-year-old midfielder scored from the penalty spot and through a free kick in Juve's 5-0 demolishing of the Singapore Selection in the team's last game of their summer tour.

    If Pirlo does in fact end his career in MLS, he wouldn't be the first Italian international to do so. Italy's goalkeeper in the 1990 World Cup, Walter Zenga, ended his career with the New England Revolution in 1999 to then become the team's manager. 2006 World Cup winner, Alessandro Nesta, also played his last game as a professional in MLS retiring in 2013 after a season with the Montreal Impact.
