It has been reported that Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has questioned Premier League interest in Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.
The Spanish international defender left Old Trafford for La Liga in 2008 and has gone on to win 15 major club titles, but is now on the fringes of the first team and has been a linked with a return to England.
“I have always thought that Spanish football, and Barcelona in particular, suits him best,” Scholes revealed in his column in The Independent.
“He likes being in a side that keeps possession. He is great at home but playing away at the big teams in England is a completely different prospect for a defender.
“His success at Barcelona and with Spain has been incredible. But I think Gerard would find it harder back in the Premier League.”
