Gerard Pique Spotted At Wimbledon Holding Chelsea Bag And It's Got People Talking

Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique has been spotted walking around Wimbledon with a bag of merchandise from the Chelsea mega store.

The 35-year-old defender, who was reportedly told by Barcelona manager Xavi that he is no longer required at the Nou Camp, is currently in South West London to watch the annual tennis tournament.

And during his trip, Pique visited the Chelsea megastore to buy home shirts for his children, according to Spanish publication Marca – and his actions have got people talking on social media.

One fan commented on the pictures saying: "Welcome to Chelsea," while another said: "With five subs and a really tight schedule it wouldn’t hurt having experience to come in and finish games. For the right $ I’ll always take Pique."

A third wrote: "Safe to say Gerard is a blue."

Pique, who is the president of Kosmos Tennis, a company that run the Davis Cup along with the ITF, was also spotted chatting to fellow countryman Rafael Nadal ahead of his first round match against Francisco Cerundolo.

As mentioned earlier, it was reported recently that Pique has been told by Barcelona manager Xavi that he is no longer needed at the club.

According to Spanish publication SPORTXavi’s main concern with his former team mate is his multiple business interests off the pitch.

It is also believed that the Catalan club owe Pique an estimate of £34.3 million in wages but Barcelona's director of football Mateu Alemany will look to convince the defender to settle for less than he is owed.

The 35-year-old’s deteriorating physical condition is also mentioned in the report but clearly some Chelsea supporters would like to see the defender at Stamford Bridge ahead of the upcoming campaign.

The Blues have been strongly linked with a move for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde in recent weeks.

In fact, Thomas Tuchel's side have a transfer in place for Kounde, according to Todofichajes, who report a fee of £50.3 million plus add-ons has been agreed.
