The trail for Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is growing after it emerged he was dropped for their win at Bayer Leverkusen this week. Pique was axed after a poor performance in defeat to Osasuna and concerns over his behaviour.

El Economista says Manchester United remain one of a number of clubs who have sounded out the possibility of Barcelona selling Pique.

Chelsea, Manchester City, AC Milan and Juventus are all on the trail of the World Cup winner.
