Barcelona may have beaten Almeria 2-1 at the weekend and spirits at the Nou Camp are now on the up again, but that doesn't apply for Gerard Pique, who was the subject of sarcastic comments by manager Luis Enrique.

After using all three substitutions, the manager told Pique to warm up and the Spaniard obeyed his orders, totally oblivious to the bizarre situation. 

Argument breaks out

But after the centre-back realised what had happened he didn't react too pleasantly, and a long row with his boss showed the 27-year-old's frustration.

Just a couple of weeks ago he was saying that he would commit his entire future to the Catalan club, playing down talk of a move to the Premier League. However a move could be back on for Pique, after his desire to remain with Barca was knocked by the events at the weekend's fixture.

Potential move

Only very recently have rumours suggested that the Spaniard is open to a return to Old Trafford, with Chelsea also sniffing around suspiciously. The two teams immediately turned their backs on the 27-year-old however, when he confirmed that he wanted to stay with Barcelona and end his career with the club.

But, after his fallout with the boss, he is keen to move away from the Nou Camp after an impressive six year spell with the club, having made an outstanding 170 appearances.

Pique transfer

It is thought that Pique will cost his suitors £24 million, with Jose Mourinho seemingly in the driving seat as Louis van Gaal has dedicated his concentration on wrapping up deals for other targets such as Mats Hummels and Benedikt Howedes.

A move to Stamford Bridge may be the direction that the pendulum is swaying at the moment for the centre-back, and if he makes it soon he could be around to pick up a league winners medal come next summer, should Mourinho's men continue their dominant form.
