Blues eye shock Manchester United raid
Birmingham City Football Club are keen on Gerard Pique
The Spanish ace spent last season on loan at Real Zaragoza and looked set for a permanent move to the La Liga side, yet Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recalled him to his squad for this campaign.
However, the former Barcelona youngster is still some way off the first team at Old Trafford, and Steve Bruce is looking to raid his old club and take the player on loan during the January transfer window.
And if the deal is a success and Pique helps the Blues maintain their position as a Premier League club, a permanent move in the summer could be on the cards if Carson Yeung completes his takeover of the St Andrews club.
"When the new guy (Yeung) comes in, I look at all the other investors that have come into the Premier League, at Portsmouth, Manchester City, West Ham United, everywhere you look, and what they have spent,” said Bruce.
"We obviously hope that is going to be the case here as well. It will be a fantastic scenario if that happens."
