Barcelona move to stave off Liverpool’s interest in Pedri by offering him new deal

Pedri impressing with Barcelona

Pedri was signed by FC Barcelona in September of 2019 from Las Palmas.

The Blaugrana would pay around £9m to bring the youngster to the Camp Nou before loaning him back to his former club for the 2019/20 campaign.

Pedri would notch just 37 appearances during his stint with Las Palmas. Yet despite his limited experience at senior level, the 18-year-old has since already cemented himself as a key figure in Ronald Koeman’s side.

All told, Pedi has now already featured 44 times across all competitions this season, in which he has scored three and assisted six.

Such a fine start to life in Catalonia has seen Pedri compared with some top players, including Andrea Iniesta. The midfielder would respond to these comparisons last month having this to say:

“I have to be Pedri. It’s an honour to be compared to Andres Iniesta.”

“From the first day they’ve treated me very well. Knowing Jordi [Alba], Busi [Sergio Busquets] and the U21 teammates makes everything easier. I like Luis Enrique’s style of play a lot.

“I hope to learn and adapt well to contribute as much as possible to the national team.”

Liverpool interested in Pedri

Pedri’s recent displays also look to have attracted interest from a top Premier League side.

According to the Mirror, Barcelona have moved to stave off Liverpool’s interest in Pedri by offering him a new deal.

It is added that Liverpool have recorded their interest with Pedri’s representatives. However, the Spanish outfit are said to have made it clear they want to extend his current deal, which still has another year to run, plus the option of an extra two years.

Said deal is also believed to contain a fairly hefty release clause of around £70m.
