Manchester United are preparing a bid to re-sign Gerard Pique from Barcelona. The Daily Star says United boss Louis Van Gaal is still desperate to sign defensive re-enforcements and has put Barcelona's Pique at the top of his wanted list.
Van Gaal has been told he has more funds to spend in the next transfer window and has made a centre back his priority.
Pique, 27, has stated his desire to remain at the Nou Camp, but United bosses are confident of being able to lure him back to Old Trafford.
An offer of £20 million is being prepared.
