Andrea Pirlo was at Yankee Stadium for the weekend's derby between New York City - the club he is expected to join - and New York Red Bulls.

Ahead of his anticipated move to New York City, Andrea Pirlo was in attendance to watch his prospective team-mates on Sunday.

Italy midfielder Pirlo has been heavily linked with a move to the MLS from Juventus.

And the 36-year-old was among the interested observers at Yankee Stadium for City's derby clash with the New York Red Bulls.

A tweet from MLS' official account showed Pirlo at the stadium, accompanied by the caption: "Andrea Pirlo in the house #NYCvNY".
