Manchester United have signed young Barcelona defender Gerard Pique.

Pique, who is a Spain Under-17 international and can also play at left-back, rejected the offer of a new contract at the Nou Camp.

No fee has been disclosed yet but Pique - whose full name is Gerard Pique Bernabeu - is reported to have signed a five-year deal.
