Reports in Spain claim Real Zaragoza want to sign Manchester United teenager Gerard Pique on loan.
The 19-year-old is highly regarded at Old Trafford after joining United from Barcelona's youth team two years ago.
Last season, he made seven appearances for The Red Devils and is likely to remain a fringe figure in Sir Alex Ferguson's plans next term.
To that end, Ferguson could decide to farm out the defender on loan, with Zaragoza reportedly interested in Pique.
Zaragoza finished in mid-table in La Liga last season and are determined to push up the standings in the 2006/07 campaign.
Pique has been pinpointed as a player who could aid the club's ambitions and reports suggest Zaragoza will soon make contact with United.
With the Premiership club well stocked in the defensive department, the club could be open to Zaragoza's approach to hand Pique more first-team experience.
