Juventus veteran Andrea Pirlo can't believe Chelsea are allowing Frank Lampard to leave.

The England midfielder is leaving Chelsea at the end of the season as the club do not want to offer him a new deal.

But Pirlo, at 33 a year younger than Lampard, told US television: "I can only make comment on what I see.

"And from what I see, Lampard is still one of the best central midfield players in the world.

"If he wanted to try at playing in Italy, I would welcome him at Juventus for sure. In Italy, Frank would comfortably have another four years at the top level."
