Pirlo will stay in Milan says agent
Thursday 25 June 2009
Chelsea target Andrea Pirlo will honour his contract with AC Milan, according to his agent.
The Italian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer, and AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi claimed recently he will consider offers for Pirlo.
But Pirlo's agent Tullio Tinti told Gazzetta dello Sport: "We are not worried by Berlusconi's comment.
"Pirlo is a Milan player.
"He is under contract and he honours contracts."
The 30-year-old is under contract with AC Milan until June 2012.
The World Cup winner made 26 league appearances as the Rossoneri finished third in Serie A last season.
