Pique told The Sun: "I would like him to. It's my wish for that to happen. I can't be clearer.
"He is a Barcelona fan and has been his whole life and he would love to come. It would be very, very good for us.
"Last year it looked like he would come but he didn't. Now it looks like he could again but we have to wait. I hope the people in the offices can work well and can bring him in this time."
