Barca sets the perfect route for ‘Messi’s successor’
Pedro González López (often called Pedri) is one of the most remarkable young talents of Spanish football today.
This small player has a height of 1m71, plays in the attacking midfield and has a style similar to superstar Lionel Messi.
Pedri is still playing in Las Palmas shirt but from September 2, 2019, he reached an agreement to switch to Barca. This jewel term is officially a member of the Blaugrana as of July 1, 2020. In the immediate future, he will sign a 3-year contract with the option of extending it for 3 more years. The value of the deal is about 5 million euros.
Coach Quique Setien put a lot of expectations in Pedri because this young player fits perfectly with the diagram and the way he is playing at Barca.
After officially transferring to the Nou Camp team, Pedri is expected to have time to get to know the first team. At the age of 17, he had the opportunity to share a dressing room with Messi and Barca’s famous stars.
Barca wants Pedri to improve all skills and the contract has a clause he will not play for Barca B unless this team is promoted to the second place.
The Catalans’ plan is clear: Pedri will go through pre-season under the supervision of coach Setien and then he will decide whether to keep him in the first team next season.
If found not suitable, Setien can take him on loan and Ajax is the first choice. There are also some other potential berths like Real Sociedad, Real Betis and Celta Vigo.
