The Blues have recently been linked as strong contenders to sign the experienced Spanish international, who has been somewhat off-form this season and who may be allowed to leave the Nou Camp.
However, United are also keen on bringing in defensive players this winter and have identified Pique as one of their top targets, while local rivals Manchester City are also interested.
Pique had a short spell at Old Trafford as a youngster before rejoining Barcelona and establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the world for some time.
