Barcelona winger Pedro has claimed that he is unsure whether he will remain at the Catalan club going into the season. The summer transfer window opens in a few weeks. Despite always being on the World Cup 2014, transfers are taking place in the background. Several clubs have been very active in the off-season in the hope of completing their summer purchases before the World Cup, as any good performances at this major tournament could inflate the prices even further. Is one of the players
Pedro is one of the players linked with an exit from Barcelona, who are expected to make a lot of changes to the playing staff. After a poor season last time around, they will be hoping to add to their playing staff in several areas of the pitch. Due to the high debts, the club will have to sell a number of star players like Cesc Fabregas in order to fund the new purchases. Despite the poor season for the club, Pedro was one of the important players for Barcelona last season. The 26-year-old made an appearance in 37 league matches, although most were as a substitute. He is one of the saleable assets at the club.
His future has been thrown into doubt after in a recent interview he accepted that he could leave Barcelona in the summer.
“I’m not sure what’s going to happen, I’m relaxed and concentrating on the team [Spain] and the World Cup. When I need to decide something, I’ll talk to the club and we’ll see what happens. But I’m relaxed and I don’t know anything, I’ll carry on concentrating on the team and on playing well in the World Cup. I don’t really understand it, he’s such a great player who plays really well for us. I haven’t talked about it with him – he’s happy and focusing on the team. If he goes, it’ll be a real shame for Barca,” said Pedro about his future and Fabregas’ future.
