One of Carlo Ancelotti’s former assistant Coaches has revealed that the Italian has asked about signing Andrea Pirlo for Real Madrid.
Ancelotti worked closely with Pirlo during their time together at Milan, whilst talk since the former’s arrival at Madrid has been of a potential reunion with the current Juventus midfielder.
It is a prospect that one of the Coach’s former assistants at the Rossoneri believes has been considered.
“Andrea is a player that Milan released believing that he could have been better physically, not for tactical or technical reasons – He could fit into any team,” began Giorgio Ciaschini to Calciomercato.com this week.
“Ancelotti asked after him when he was at Chelsea, last year when with Paris Saint-Germain and even now coaching at Real Madrid.
“Pirlo is a universal player. The problem is that Juventus are not crazy enough to let him go.”
