London: Shakira is apparently moving to Barcelona, fuelling rumours she’s dating Barca footballer Gerard Pique.

The singer is now planning on spending more time in the Catalan city.

"Shakira has a sister who lives there and she already spends a lot of time there but is now planning on setting up her European base,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

The Colombian star has even rented a villa on the outskirts of Barcelona from Spanish ex world long distance swimming champion David Meca, with an indefinite lease.

This is the same luxury pad where she stayed last year while filming the video for single Loca with Dizzee Rascal.
