The decision to pen a four-year extension will likely see Pique retire at Barcelona and the club say they will officially announce the new contract in the coming days.

The Spain global joined the Catalan giants from Manchester United in 2008 and has gone on to make over 250 appearances for the La Liga giants during his 10 years in the city.

Meanwhile, the club will be hoping Sergi Roberto follows in his footsteps in the near future after last month both the player and president Josep Maria Bartomeu admitted negotiations had begun for the midfielder to sign a new long-term deal.

Pique has worn the Barcelona jersey in 422 games scoring 37 goals for the club.

Pique left Barca for Manchester in 2004, but was brought back in a bargain £5 million deal four years later.

According to a statement released on Barcelona's official website, "The club and the player have agreed terms on a new deal through to June 30, 2022".

With Spain, he won the World Cup in 2010 and the European Championship in 2012.

Meanwhile, Barcelona now tops the Spanish League with nine points leads over Atletico Madrid.
