Pique admits Fabregas is not valued at Barcelona as rumoured Chelsea move draws close
The playmaker has failed to nail down a permanent spot in the La Liga side, since he moved from Arsenal in 2011 and is strongly rumoured to be on his way back to England.
Arsene Wenger has reportedly turned down the chance to re-sign him for the Gunners and he is thought to be heading to Chelsea.
Pique is however hopeful that Fabregas will ignore interest from abroad and remain at the Nou Camp.
“I really like Cesc and I know he is going through a tough time because the club don’t appreciate him as much as they should,” the defender said at a press conference.
“He is one of those players who would be first-choice at any other club in the world, the star of the team.
“Despite that, he is finding it harder at Barca. I don’t know what he is going to do; we haven’t spoken about that.
“I hope he stays, because if you look at his stats this season, he is our highest-scoring midfielder and the one with the most assists. Of course I want him to stay with us.”
