Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has said he doesn’t see himself leaving the club, amid rumours of a possible return to Manchester United.
The Spain defender, 27, was at Old Trafford between 2004 and 2008 but only made six League starts for United before moving to Barcelona.
Rumours had circulated suggesting Pique could be interested in making a return to his old club, but the centre back has put an end to any speculation by saying he doesn’t intend leave either now or in the future.
“I love this club for its history, its style of play and its connection to Catalonia,” he told FourFourTwo.
“I love it here. I am at the best club in the world right now. I have no intention of leaving now or later.
“I’ve just signed a new contract and I want to retire a Blaugrana, just like [Carles] Puyol did.
“You never know what the future holds, but right now, I love this city, I love the people in the club, and most importantly, I love the institution.
“I don’t see myself leaving.”
