Rome, December 28 - Italy playmaker Andrea Pirlo on Monday squashed rumours he might be returning from New York to Inter Milan. "I have a contract with New York City FC and I intend to respect it," said the 36-year-old former AC Milan and Juventus midfielder. "New York City is an ambitious club. Inter? Market rumours don't bother me, I'm used to them," said the Italy legend. "Many teams have sought me out but I want to complete my contract in America". Pirlo spent three years at Inter before 11 at Milan and four at Juve.
