The Spain international together with some of his friends founded this company four years ago, and they have been making big profits ever since then.

So far this season, Gerard Pique has not been able to play many games for the Spanish giants as a knee injury has kept the Spaniard out of 23 encounters.

According to the report on Daily Star, that has given the former Manchester United star the chance to monitor his company where he is raking in more money.

But according to the report, his decision largely rests on the outcome of Barcelona's upcoming March presidential elections.

Last summer, Messi was on the verge of leaving Barcelona after a soured relationship with Bartomeu, forcing the latter to step down as Barcelona's president.

But now the 33-year-old is convinced to remain at the Camp Nou after Bartomeu's exit.

Messi is out of contract in the summer and he has been rumoured to either make a move to PSG or Man City in the summer.
