Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has quashed media rumours suggesting that he could be ready to make a January move to Premier League big-spenders Manchester City.

The 23-year-old Spain World Cup winner, who re-joined Barca from Manchester United in May 2008, insists he has no intention of returning to England.

Pique is thought to be high on Citizens manager Roberto Mancini's wish-list, but his admission will come as a blow to Eastlands-based club's aspirations.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "I have heard the rumour but my head is in Barcelona and it is not a question of money."
