Could Gerard Pique be John Terry's replacement?

Recently in the press, Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique has been linked with a move away from the club. The Spaniard has been rumoured with a move to many clubs, including Chelsea.

With John Terry now being 33 years of age, could the potential arrival of Pique be a replacement for an aging Terry?

So far this season, Chelsea have been strong at the back, with Jonn Terry and Gary Cahill forming a formidable partnership. However, Chelsea lack depth in the centre-back, only youngster Kurt Zouma being a viable stand in.

Pique to seek Barcelona exit?

A long-term injury to either Terry or Cahill could see Jose Mourinho delve into the transfer market. With many options available, Pique is a player that Chelsea could look to sign.

After defeat in the El Clasico, Pique was one of the players singled out after a poor performance. With the Spanish defender under-fire, could he seek a move elsewhere?

Gerard Pique is no stranger to English football; he played for Manchester United from 2004 to 2008, but only made 12 league appearances for the first team. He was mostly confined to the reserve team.

Move back to England unlikely

With his previous history at Manchester United, could this dampen the chances of Chelsea signing the defender? Pique has been linked with a move back to Old Trafford. And given their defensive frailties, this move is possible, as is a move to Stamford Bridge.

A move back to England seems unlikely as, recently, Pique has confirmed his loyalty to his current employers. He hoped that he would retire at Barcelona and has no intention to leave the Nou Camp.

However, if Pique continues to disappoint the Barcelona management, a move could be out of his control.

What do you think? Could Pique move to Chelsea? Or even back to Manchester United? Comment below.
