Reports have emerged claiming that Manchester City are set to snap up Italian legend Andrea Pirlo.
Pirlo has just completed his first MLS season with New York City FC and been linked with a three-month loan move to Inter Milan.
However, Sky Italia says City and sister club NYCFC have struck agreement over a loan deal for Pirlo.
The veteran will skip his winter break and enjoy a three-month spell at City from January.
Pirlo, 36, still expects to play next season in MLS.
