Villa keen on Pirlo link-up

David Villa has revealed his desire to link up with Andrea Pirlo at New York City as the Juventus midfielder closes in on the MLS.

Reports in the United States claim the 36-year-old will be confirmed as an NYCFC player on Friday, and his fellow veteran admits it would be great to play alongside him at the Yankee Stadium.

“It’d be great to play with Pirlo,” the former Barcelona attacker said after his side’s 2-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday.

“He’s a great player and a star. It’d be really good, but it’s still too early to talk about it.”
