Italian legend Pirlo talks London move: Work with Conte at Chelsea...?

Italian legend Andrea Pirlo won't rule out a move to Chelsea.

The New York City FC midfielder has announced his playing retirement - and is immediately being linked with a coaching job at Chelsea.

Pirlo played for Blues manager Antonio Conte at Juventus and the pair remain close.

“At 38, it's just right to give young players room. I'm not angry. Instead, I will give a hand to team-mates and to the coach," he said.

“I'll do something else, I'll be back in Italy in December.

“Work with Conte? They say things, I have some ideas, but give me time to decide."
