Depor to land Man Utd defender Pique

Deportivo La Coruna are close to signing Manchester United defender Gerard Pique in a £4 million deal.

The People says the 20-year-old spent last season on loan at Real Zaragoza and is unhappy with life at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson does not want to lose him but will demand a top price for Pique, who was lured from Barcelona in 2004. Pique feels he needs first-team football to advance his career and make the full Spanish side, while United have youngsters such as Jonny Evans on the fringes.
