Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo will consider leaving the club next summer if he is no longer important to coach Antonio Conte.

Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he is willing to end his career with the Old Lady, but only if he remains a permanent first-team fixture.

Pirlo joined Juve from AC Milan on a free transfer in 2011, helping Antonio Conte's side claim two consecutive Serie A titles and enjoy a 49-match unbeaten run.

The 34-year-old has conceded that he may be forced to go abroad when his contract expires next summer, but for now Juve remains his priority.

He told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I'll certainly play on, we'll just have to see where. I've already spoken to the club and we'll meet again at the end of the season.

"Juve are my priority, but I don't want to be a weight for anybody. The years go by, but it is not written that I have to stay here just because I am called Pirlo. I want to feel important and a part of the side's success, otherwise I'll leave. But I want to underline that it won't be a problem about money or choosing between one club and another.

"If I had to change, perhaps I'll go abroad. I'll certainly continue playing for a high level team. I've spoken with my agent and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, someone who I regularly talk to. But nobody has offered me the chance to join Real."

Pirlo has made 86 appearances for the Old Lady alongside earning 102 international caps with the Azzurri.
