Asked about a hypothetical transfer to Real Madrid, Gerard Piqué is radical and does not consider for a single second to wear the merengue tunic one day.
Born in Barcelona and trained at the Blaugrana club, Gerard Piqué had a short exile at Manchester United with returning to Barça in 2008 and never leaving. Basic man of the many titles gleaned by the Catalans under the orders of Pep Guardiola , the central defender is also very identified with his region and his city. In fact, Gerard Pique has repeatedly shown his position on the independence of Catalonia and therefore maintains the rivalry with the capital, Madrid. What is felt in the Clasicos.
“I'd rather die than go to Madrid”
Therefore, it seems hardly imaginable to see Gerard Piqué wear the Real Madrid jersey one day. Asked about this possibility on the set of El Hormiguero, broadcast on the Spanish television channel A3, the defender of Barça does not mince his words. “It's absolutely impossible. There is nothing. I'd rather die than go to Madrid, ”says Gerard Piqué before admitting that he has Florentino Pérez 's number in his directory. But if he is discussing with the president of Real Madrid , it is not for a transfer. “If he hasn't changed it, I have it, for a personal question,” he says.
