Marco Tardelli says that Andrea Pirlo should test himself in the Premier League before he retires.

Former Juventus midfielder Marco Tardelli believes that Andrea Pirlo should move to the Premier League.

The 34-year-old Italy international midfielder's current contract with the Bianconeri will run out at the end of the season and an agreement over a new deal has yet to be reached.

"Andrea is special and always decisive," Tardelli told Tuttosport. "It is not only with his free kicks he is good; if he plays well, the whole team improves.

"It's a complex and personal decision. That said, I would try Andrea in English football. Pirlo is quite famous in those parts."

Pirlo joined Juventus on a free transfer in 2011 after leaving AC Milan and has helped the Turin giants win back-to-back Serie A titles.
