AC Milan's Italy international Andrea Pirlo has confirmed he recently rejected the chance of a move to England or Spain.
"I feel good at Milan and I'm happy to stay," he said. "A few years ago there could have been a different situation.
"Milan could have been relegated to Serie B and there was a possibility I would have left.
"Now we're in Serie A and despite missing out on next year's Champions League we're in the middle of something special.
"I've only won one Scudetto and now I want to win another. I had offers from Spain and England.
"It's flattering to be wanted by such prestigious sides, but I'm in the world's strongest side and I have no intention of leaving."
