Two goals in Champions League, Under 21 Iberian player , but Gerard Piqué Bernabeu, feels excluded from Sir Alex Ferguson and therefore decided to don't accept the renewal of the contract offered by Manchester United . Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport claims that Juventus is “very close” to signing Gerard Piqué. The versatile young defender, who can play as a centre-back or right-back, has a contract which expires in June 2009. During the mission for Olof Mellberg, Alessio Secco ( Juventus ) met the agents of the Catalan defender.

Barcelona have held talks with the representatives of Manchester United defender Gerard Piqué.
AS says Barca sports director Txiki Begiristain is eager to sound out Pique about a return to the Nou Camp as talks stall over a deal for Racing Santander defender Ezequiel Garay.
Piqué quit Barca for United in 2004, but has found it difficult this season to break up the first-choice defensive pairing of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
