against atlético Madrid. Barcelona may be forced to sign a defender in January after Gerard Pique is
reportedly looking at six months on the sidelines.
According to Marca, Barcelona are considering signing a long-term replacement for veteran defender
Gerard Pique was a product of Barcelona’s La Masia youth academy but left to join the Manchester United academy in 2004, where he remained for four years. The defender made just 12 appearances for the Red Devils
before rejoining Barcelona in 2008, after failing to adjust to the English game.
During his twelve years at Barcelona, Gerard Pique has helped the club win eight La Liga titles, six Copa Del
Reys, six Supercopa de Espana, and three Champions League titles.
The 33-year-old has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world during his time with the
Catalan giants. However, he has come in for much criticism in recent seasons, with many pundits and fans
believing that his best days are behind him.
