pique - fabregas

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has some words of advice for his former club Manchester United, telling the English champions to stop wasting their time with their pursuit of Cesc Fabregas.

Having had two offers rebuffed already, United are said to be preparing a third bid for the midfielder that will break the club’s transfer record.

But with Barcelona president Sandro Rosell apparently telling United that Cesc is not for sale, United’s efforts to sign the former Arsenal captain seem futile, an idea echoed by Pique in The Sun.

The red top quotes Pique as saying:

“United are wasting their time.

“It took a long time for Cesc to get his dream move back home and he won’t give it up.

“This is home. It is where his family is, and he is playing with his closest friends.

“He has told us he is happy and that he intends to stay with Barcelona.”
