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.
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.”
