Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he could have lined up for the best team in the world in Barcelona if he wanted to.
The AC Milan legend said he rejected a potential move to join Pep Guardiola’s ‘perfect’ team.
Pirlo started his pro career through a host of Italian football clubs like Brescia, Inter Milan, and Reggina before he developed into a superstar at Milan following his big-money move. He was with the Rossoneri for a decade before he decided to leave. He moved to Serie A giant Juventus as he left in the pecking order at the San Siro.
Pirlo said that before his move to play for the Bianconeri, he could have moved to Nou Camp.
“When I was at Milan, we played a friendly game at the Camp Nou and after the game, Pep Guardiola called me into his office inside the stadium. He asked me if I would like to play under him at Barcelona. It was very nice for me, to have been asked to his office and told that. At that time, Milan would never have allowed me to leave though,” Pirlo said recently in an interview with L’Equipe.
