Gerard Pique has been talking about his future and says he does not yet know when he will retire from the game.

The centre-back will celebrate his 33rd birthday in February and is heading towards the end of his illustrious career, although he remains a key player for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

He signed a new Barcelona deal in January 2018 that runs until June 2022 and said he wants to finish on a high.

“Right now my thoughts are that every year has to be my last year. I want to dedicate as much as I can to football.

“I want to end my career in the best way possible. I don’t know if it will be one more year, two more years, five more years. But I am happy at Barcelona.”

Pique announced his retirement from international duty last summer after the World Cup and has previously said he will hang up his boots “the day I don’t enjoy what I do.”
