The World Cup winner has only started three La Liga games for the Catalans so far this season and was also left on the bench for the Champions League defeat against Paris St Germain.
With Pique’s place in the Barcelona starting line-up in doubt, speculation has mounted that the 27-year-old could be set to move away from Catalonia however, the former Manchester United star has now moved to quash reports of his imminent departure.
“I love this club for its history, its style of play and its connection to Catalunya,” he told FourFourTwo.
“I love it here. I am at the best club in the world right now. I have no intention of leaving now or later. I’ve just signed a new contract and I want to retire a Blaugrana, just like [Carles] Puyol did.
“You never know what the future holds, but right now, I love this city, I love the people in the club, and most importantly, I love the institution. I don’t see myself leaving.”
Pique was also asked to compare Xavi with former United team-mate Paul Scholes but wasn’t able to choose between the two midfield legends.
“You cannot make me choose between them!” said the Spain international. “You could say Xavi because of international titles, but the two of them are technically amazing.”
