Pique has recently fallen out of favour at the Nou Camp this season and had been linked with making a surprise return to Old Trafford during the January transfer window.
However, reports in Spain say the powerful centre back has now decided to join Chelsea instead, with a move to the Blues looking likely to go through soon.
Jose Mourinho has already made a £23.6m offer, and though Barca are yet to accept it, they are thought to be near to accepting once all parties can agree on the particulars.
