Gerard Pique pictured with a Chelsea bag, transfer links emerge

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is currently in London to watch Wimbledon, and he was spotted outside the Chelsea megastore with a Chelsea bag in his hand.

The pictures have fuelled speculations surrounding the defender’s feature, and links have started to emerge with the Blues.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez recently informed the 35-year-old that he is no longer a key part of the first-team squad, and Pique has been linked with a move away from Camp Nou.

However, there have been no reports of Chelsea being interested in the experienced Spanish international. Pique was just visiting the club’s megastore to buy some merchandise with his kids.

It is no secret that Chelsea need to bring in a quality defender after the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. However, Pique would be an underwhelming option for the Premier League side.

The 35-year-old is no longer at his best, and his physical condition has deteriorated as well.

He is struggling to hold down a regular starting berth at Barcelona, and he is unlikely to improve Chelsea.

Despite the transfer links because Pique visited the club’s megastore, a summer move seems highly unlikely. It’ll be interesting to see if Pique decides to continue with Barcelona next season.

According to reports, the Spanish club owe him wages worth of £34M, but they are hoping to come to a mutual agreement so that the defender can help the club during the economic crisis.
