The Spaniard revealed he was looking forward to making a return to "my second home."

Pique signed for the Red Devils in 2004 under Sir Alex Ferguson from the Barcelona academy, spending four years at Old Trafford.

However, the 34-year-old who made just 12 appearances for United returned to Barcelona in 2008 after struggling to adapt to life in the Premier League.

He has since established himself as an integral squad member at the Camp Nou, winning a number of titles with his boyhood side.

Meanwhile, the first leg of the quarter final fixture has been slated for Wednesday, 10 April at Old Trafford.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United are now on the verge of missing next season's Champions League competition even if they finish fourth this season in the Premier League.

This is because of the rules governing the Champions League which only allowed four Premier League teams to participate in the tournament every year.
