Real Zaragoza have completed a loan deal for Manchester United youngster Gerard Pique.

United hope that a season in La Liga will help mature the former Barcelona youngster and guarantee him a long-term future at Old Trafford.

There is a sale option attached to the deal, and the Catalonian must feature in at least 20 games for the Estadio La Romerado outfit in a deal which could work out well for both sides.

Pique moves to Spain following his run in the all-conquering Furia Roja Under-19 side, which won the European Championships this summer.

Zaragoza have been anxious to shore up their defence after last season's 11th-placed finish in the league, in which they conceded 51 goals in 38 games, and with the promising youngster in their ranks they hope to push their way up the Spanish top flight this year.
