Barcelona forward, Pedro Eliezer Rodríguez Ledesma, has put Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool on red alert after admitting that he could leave Barcelona this summer.
Pedro said, “I’m calm, with my mind set on the club until the end of the season and then we’ll see what happens after that. Not having continuity makes things complicated. It’s tough, but what I try to do is help out as much as possible.”
The 27-year-old had made 20 league appearances this term, but only 10 of those have been starts. While he is tied to the club until 2016, he said the lack of regular playing time is affecting him and suggested he could leave in the summer.
The Barcelona forward insists he is happy at the club but does not know of his future beyond this season, despite his contract expiring in 2016.
Pedro also jumped to the defense of Luis Suarez, who has faced significant criticism for his form following a big-money move from Liverpool in the summer. “You can see Suarez is totally motivated,” he added.
Barcelona boss Luis Enrique wasted no time in showing Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez the door when he replaced Gerardo Martino in the hot seat, with the club ready to hand more chances to academy products.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are on the move for the Barcelona forward. However, the Premier League trio are sure to reignite their interest following the Spain international’s latest admission to journalists in a press conference.
The Spain international has been at Camp Nou for almost 11 years, winning four league titles and two Champions Leagues among a plethora of other trophies.
