Juventus and AC Milan icon Andrea Pirlo has revealed he twice turned down Premier League offers during his playing career.

He insists, however, that he has no regrets about not playing in the Premier League, having also rejected the opportunity to join Manchester City in 2011.

"I had the chance to come (to the Premier League) with (Carlo) Ancelotti to Chelsea and with Manchester City when I went to Juventus," he told the Daily Mail.

"Chelsea said that I was very old - 30 years old! And the other time I preferred to come to Juventus.

"For sure it would have been a fantastic experience but I'm happy that I decided to stay in Italy."
