Barcelona coach Xavi admits plans to buy Pique replacement


Barcelona coach Xavi has confirmed they'll seek to buy a replacement for Gerard Pique.

Pique has announced his retirement this week.

"We are going to see what happens," Xavi said. "But knowing that Gerard is going, maybe we will look for a centre-back in January. We will analyse things after the Osasuna game."

Xavi's idea would be to incorporate a left-sided central defender and the chosen one is Iñigo Martínez, who has six months left on his contract at Athletic Club.

The Blaugrana were keen on him in the summer but there was no agreement with Athletic and this deal would still only be carried out if the price is reasonable.
