    Doubt we will sell him. He will have to be the one to leave or retire himself, he's too popular and has too many ties with the club.

    Pique has earned thee "legend treatment" from Barca, just like Xavi,Puyol,Iniesta or even Mascherano. He should have the right to decide when he leaves after 11 years of serving the club well, he shouldn't be shown the door
    He should be phased out from starting spot soon, either by Lenglet-Umtiti partnership or by new signing. This is also the barca way, we don't sell a starter before someone is already here to replace him.
    Get CB position sorted out next year with someone the club sees the potential in him to bench Pique (May be Todibo is that guy? if not sign someone) and then he will likely won't stay here beyond 2020 or 2021 at most

    No. He's still good overall, just not as he once was, and he'll not get us too much money anyway.

    If Umtiti gets his health in order and Todibo is as good as touted, we're fine in the CB area. A lot depends on Umtiti's state next summer.

    If we sell Coutinho though and Eriksen slips away or extends with Tottenham, De Ligt might become an option.

    No way in hell we are selling him. De Ligt is 19y old and even if we buy him he'll need time.

    if motivated, Piqué is still capable of top performances. Don't judge him after the Sevilla game which clearly was treated as a low priority by EV.

    He is not going to be sold lol. Basically has as much power in this club as Barto. Will play here until his retirement, probably in the starting line-up as well.

    Sounds reasonable. Think he has mind on other stuff as well and won't cling on for long.

    Although, I can't see how we fit him, Umtiti, Lenglet and possibly: de Ligt.

    Unless he wants to move somewhere himself. Like the US.

    He doesn't deserve to be kicked out. If he wants to stay he should stay, if not he can leave.

    Players like Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Piqué, Messi should end their Barca careers with a year where they are phased out rather than sold.
    These legends arrived basically for free so no need to try and sell them to the highest bidder. Concerning the salary they already repaid that on the pitch.

    I believe Pique is smart enough to see the writing on the wall. Next season will be his last at Barcelona. Then he'll probably join one of the LA MLS teams for a year or two, connect some contacts in Hollywood and Silicon Valley for all his businesses.
