Pedri made his Barcelona debut on September 27, 2020. After just over a year, this young player has become a prominent name in world football. Pedri is an integral part of the Barcelona squad and is one of the faces of La Liga.
The teen player had a sublime last season across the league. Pedri won the main kick at Barcelona and was also the mainstay of the Spain team in the journey to the semi-finals of Euro 2020. He was voted the best young player in this tournament. In addition, Pedri also helped the Spanish Olympic Games win the Silver Medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
Pedri grew tremendously last season
Barcelona of course clearly see Pedri’s outstanding maturity and want to prevent interest from any other team. Therefore, the Catalan team is promoting a contract extension with the midfielder born in 2002.
Laporta yesterday said that the contract renewals of Pedri and Ansu Fati are underway and there may be good news this week. Less than 24 hours later, there was an update on Pedri’s condition.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Pedri has agreed to a contract extension with the Catalan team. Britain will sign the deal until 2026 early next week. The star’s contract extension with his team could help Barcelona’s fans celebrate, something they have rarely done since the start of this season.
Pedri is considered the future of Barcelona
Pedri is also among the top 30 players nominated for the prestigious Golden Ball award. Moreover, he also entered the top 10 finalists of the Trophee Kopa, the award given by France Football to the best under-21 player of the season.
Currently, Pedri is out of action due to a recurring left quadriceps injury. This injury caused the 18-year-old player to be out of action for 2-3 weeks. If everything goes well, Pedri will be able to play again next weekend.
