Andrea Pirlo Signs Three Year Deal With Juventus

Andrea Pirlo was at Juventus for a medical on Tuesday, and, as expected, he has signed for the Turin club on a three year deal. Pirlo announced last week that he would be leaving AC Milan when the scudetto winners were unable to offer him more than a one year contract extension. Despite the midfielder wearing the rossoneri kit for more than ten years, the club's new policy is to offer only one year extensions to all players 30 years of age and over, and Pirlo sought more security.

And so now he dons the black and white stripes, although it still remains seen who will manage the side. It is expected that Antonio Conte will be appointed to coach Juventus, replacing Gigi Delneri, who left after the final match against Napoli. Still, it remains unlikely that either a veteran midfielder or a new coach will save the struggling Old Lady -- a few more players might do nicely, however.
