The footballer is reportedly keen to delay the move as he is looking forward to going with his children to the Three Kings parade in Barcelona.

"I wish you a sweet holiday. Here’s to a 2023 that's filled with peace and hope."
It comes as earlier this year, the star had described the "darkest time" of her life in an interview with magazine Elle.
Shakira and her ex-boyfriend appeared in court this month after they reached a custody settlement for their two sons following a 12-hour marathon meeting with lawyers.
And the former couple also agreed to sell their five-storey Barcelona property following their shocking split.
The next step of their divorce is to repeat the procedure in the US.
She will have to return to Barcelona for her as-yet undated £12million tax fraud trial.
The mum-of-two has been charged with six counts of tax fraud and has been warned she could be hit with an eight-year prison sentence if found guilty.
The singer previously denied rumours she's dating a Spanish surf instructor Gorka Ezkurdia, 24.
The rumours were sparked after they were photographed together on a beach near the northern Spanish city of Santander.
But the Colombian singer-songwriter angrily rubbished suggestions she was dating again.
Shakira said: “Out of respect for my children and the vulnerable moment they are going through, I ask the media to stop the speculation.
“I do not have a partner or any interest beyond devoting myself entirely to my children.”
Pique is currently living in a penthouse apartment with his new girlfriend, 23-year-old Clara Chia.
