Pique set for EPL return?

Former Manchester United ace Gerard Pique could be heading for a surprise England comeback amid the ire among the Spanish faithful.

The Barcelona centre-back has recently claimed that Spanish referees show bias towards Real Madrid in all facets, and this has sort of demolished his reputation in his country.

According to Don Balon, the Spaniard's wife and pop star Shakira wants her husband to distance himself from the anger of his home fans, and this could see him join a Premier League club based in London.

Antonio Conte's side are currently deemed favourites to pursue the former United defender with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal unlikely to cough up huge amounts to lure the World Cup winner.

Pique is likely to cost a sum in excess of £45m, and this could be something the Blues could match following the massive £60m from the sale of Oscar.
