Reports have claimed that Shakira’s friendship with Chelsea ace Cesc Fabregas could prove the key in steering boyfriend Gerard Pique to London.
The 27-year-old defender is on his way out at Barcelona and Chelsea are favourites to seal a deal after making a £23.5 million offer.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho sees Pique as the ideal long-term replacement for John Terry.
And the Daily Star website says the Portuguese could have an unexpected ally in the shape of superstar singer Shakira.
She prefers London’s heady heights to a life up north and also wants to be closer to pals in the capital.
