Gerard Pique has dismissed suggestions he could follow former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola to Manchester City, due to his affection for their city rivals United.

"My love for Manchester United is too big to let me even consider signing for City one day, even with Guardiola in charge," the defender said after Barca's 2-1 win over Sevilla on Sunday (via AS).

Pique spent four years at Old Trafford, making 22 appearances, before rejoining his childhood club, Barca, in 2008.

And while the Spain defender ruled out joining City, he was open to the prospect of playing in Colombia, the country of his partner Shakira:

I would like to try out a different league for a couple of years at some point before I retire. I don't know whether Colombia might be an option for me, but only because of Shakira. But you can never predict what'll happen in the future.
