Only a few in the history of football will have their names as a trademark for some certain position in football and Andrea Pirlo will definitely be part of them. The Italian was born on May 1979 and started his professional playing career in 1995 at Brescia where he played till 1998.
Andrea Pirlo’s net worth was going to start getting the real value after he left Brescia for a top club in Italy, Inter Milan and that was when the world knew who this magician was. With many financial institutions estimating his net worth to be worth $50m, he has earned the right to be a multi-millionaire from his playing days and many other business ventures he is in. For a known player that has played everywhere in Italy, having a net worth of $50m is definitely not a big deal.
As his ability began gaining traction across the country, he started getting several offers from rival clubs in Italy and this is why he was among the list of players that played for the three biggest clubs in Italy without being slated by their fans. His move from Inter Milan to AC Milan in 2001 was one that was anticipated as he was loaned out twice at Inter so when Milan came calling, it was like a new beginning.
The move to Milan was the ice-breaker in his career. That was where he got the name the Register, a position that is played by a midfielder that plays as a defensive midfielder but can move the ball very fast and forward. Pirlo was the master at this. He was a special footballer and his contribution to AC Milan where he spent a decade can never be forgotten.
A player that won the world cup playing at your club and inspire the team to two Champions League victory was definitely going to remain a legend in the eyes of the fans regardless of what happened later that made his move to Juventus.
His move to Juve was one many never expected because he was already 32 when he made this move but it was a masterstroke for Juve to clinch him and he was the jigsaw to their rejuvenation. He started a new breed Juve that get the best deals at zero cost. The set of quality players that join for free when their contract expires at their current club.
Signing a 32 year was a gamble that paid off. Pirlo was a key member of the Italian squad that won the World Cup in Germany in 2006, finishing with the highest assist and winning the bronze ball. He did not only have a great career at the club but also excelled at national team football. This is why it is no surprise he is worth $50m. When his personal businesses are added, especially his stake in a family business in a metal business and also a vineyard that he personally owns, then we will realize how massive his investment knowledge is as good as his football knowledge.
