Pirlo: Guardiola Wanted Me At Barcelona

A midfield consisting of Andres Iniesta, Xavi and... Andrea Pirlo! Could you imagine?
The Italian midfielder has revealed that Pep Guardiola once tried to talk him into making it happen.
“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," Pirlo told L'Équipe.

“He asked me if I would like to go and 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.”
The 37-year-old Pirlo is now approaching the end of his splendid career playing in the Major League Soccer with New York City FC.
