Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has ruled out the possibility of ever joining Real Madrid anytime in the future.
The Spanish international who lays in the center-back position said it’s absolutely impossible for him to consider an offer from Madrid.
Speaking during an interview with Spanish television show El Homiguero ahead of Barca’s match with Real Betis in the La Liga, Pique said “It’s absolutely impossible” for him to consider an offer from Real Madrid.
“There’s nothing. I would rather die than go to Madrid,” he added with a smile.
34-year-old Pique has so far won eight LaLiga, seven Copa del Rey trophies, and three Champions League trophies during an illustrious career with Barcelona.
