Metro have massively disappointed Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they report that Gerard Pique has made it very clear he has no intentions of returning to England as a player.
The Spanish international defender spent time at United as a youngster and went back to Barcelona after impressing the club enough to warrant a bid, becoming one of the best defenders in the world in the process.
So much so that Louis van Gaal had eyed the Spaniard as one of the players to bring in this summer and install some much needed quality in the back four.
However, after being asked about the links, Pique made a point of ending all speculation and pledging his future to Luis Enrique’s side.
He spoke about the potential chance of a move and the rest of his career, and was even asked about where he planned to retire, ending all hopes of a transfer by stating: “Whether that’s at the end of this season or six years from now. I won’t play for another club.”
That sounds pretty final to us!
