Juve suspend Pirlo talks


Pirlo's existing deal will expire at the end of the season, with the Italy playmaker keen to extend his stay.

However, the Old Lady appear to be in no rush to retain the 34-year-old's services.

"Pirlo's contract? We have held talks and are calm about it. We have decided to continue negotiations in February or March," Marotta told Tuttosport.

Pirlo joined the Turin giants on a free transfer from AC Milan in the summer of 2011, and has played a key role in helping the Bianconeri win back-to-back Serie A titles.
