Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has agreed to renew his contract with the Catalan giants after reportedly rejecting interest from Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.
According to Goal.com, all three Premier League clubs made proposals to the Spain international, as did Serie A champions Juventus, but Pique rebuffed these approaches in order to commit his future to Barcelona.
Pique's current contract is due to expire at the end of next season and the 26-year-old's new deal will reportedly earn him €7 million-a-year after tax, which will represent an increase to his present salary.
Manchester United are reported to have been in touch with regards to a proposed return to Old Trafford as David Moyes makes plans for the eventual departures of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
Vidic could well leave Old Trafford at the end of the campaign should he not agree an extension with Manchester United, and this appears to be an increasingly likely scenario.
The 32-year-old's agent claimed last week he would 'rule out' Vidic staying with the Premier League champions before the end of his current deal.
