Milan risk losing Pirlo

Andrea Pirlo will not be offered a contract extension by Milan until April, meaning the club are risking losing him on a free transfer when his current deal expires in the summer.
Milan have nine players who will be out of contract at the end of the season, but the club are intent on reducing their wage bill and lowering the average age of the squad. Pirlo, who is 31-years-old, is now seemingly at risk of being released unless he agrees to take a wage cut.
The World Cup winning playmaker currently earns €5 million a year, but Champions League bonuses will increase this to €7m. The Rossoneri are not prepared to offer Pirlo the same deal beyond the end of this season, meaning question marks will inevitably arise about his future.
Pirlo’s agent Tullio Tinti has already tried to open negotiations for his client, but Milan are not interesting in talking about a new contract for another couple of months.
The Gazzetta dello Sport has claimed that Pirlo, who is currently free to sign a pre-contract with another club should he choose, is being coveted by several teams across Europe. Inter, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid are named as four interested parties should Pirlo be unable to agree new terms with Milan.
However, the Rossoneri are still very keen on Pirlo staying, but only on their terms. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
