the 17-year-old is relieved that he ended up joining the Catalans instead of Real Madrid. “Two or three years ago, I went to Madrid to do a test,” Pedri told Youtuber DjMariiO. “I was there for a week, but they told me to continue working. They didn’t want to sign me.

Pedri is happy that he’s a Barcelona player

Pedri is already planning a life as a Barcelona player, and the 17-year-old is relieved that he ended up joining the Catalans instead of Real Madrid. “Two or three years ago, I went to Madrid to do a test,” Pedri told Youtuber DjMariiO. “I was there for a week, but they told me to continue working. They didn’t want to sign me. Last season I started the preseason with Las Palmas, but Barcelona signed me before I finished. I had already signed after the preseason. It was my childhood dream. It was so much better than Barcelona called me, and I got this opportunity.” The Canary Islander is now Lionel Messi’s teammate, which is hard to get used to.

“I will be nervous when I see him,” admitted the teenager. “He is the best in the world, but on the field, I will forget who I play with, and it will be like with someone else. I am glad to meet everyone, they are all wonderful, and I will enjoy the preseason a lot, and if I stay at the club, the whole season”. Pedri will probably be loaned by the Catalans for 2020/21, although that is not what he is opposed to. “I would be happy to go on loan if not opportunities,” He said. “There are proposals from the German parties that are doing very well and I don’t mind trying something abroad. I need to play and keep growing. I know that I need to work as hard as possible to be able to stay. We will see.”
