New York City FC have dismissed rumors of an offseason loan for midfielder and Designated Player Andrea Pirlo.

Multiple European outlets reported Pirlo could move to Inter Milan or Manchester City in a potential offseason loan. The Italian midfielder said late this season that he would return to Europe in the offseason but he never really hinted towards any sort of football activity on his agenda.

The club clarified their star player’s situation, revealing that Pirlo’s short-term plans only include his participation in the team’s friendly in Puerto Rico and a vacation.

With Euro 2016 on the horizon, it was believed Pirlo would be open to an opportunity for more playing time to prepare for the tournament. But NYCFC only have a six-week break between their Dec. 11 friendly and the start of training camp in late January, so Pirlo will not be away from the field for too long.
