DEVASTATING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona are ready to sell Xavi’s favourite player for €120 million as they need to raise funds as they look to raise funds to bolster the squad in the ongoing January transfer window. The player is frustrated with Barcelona in their decision to sell him and feels betrayed by the club.


Barcelona is reportedly considering selling Pedri, manager Xavi’s preferred player, to raise funds and strengthen the team in the ongoing January transfer window. The 21-year-old Pedri is highly regarded as one of the most promising young talents, making 120 appearances and contributing 17 goals along with nine assists since his debut for Barca in 2020.

Despite his talent, Pedri has been plagued by injuries, missing a significant 70 games, including 14 this season. Although he’s under contract until 2026, Barcelona is concerned about his recurring injuries. According to Todo Fichajes (via El Nacional), they are willing to offload him for €120 million in the summer to finance new signings. While a crucial player under Xavi’s management, Pedri’s injury woes persist, though the club firmly believes in his potential to make a difference when fit and playing consistently. However, his recent muscular problems have ruled him out of Barcelona’s last two matches.

Pedri himself acknowledges that his susceptibility to injuries could hinder a long and successful career. He has implemented lifestyle changes to minimize these occurrences and perform at his best for extended periods. Speaking on Ibai Llanos’ Twitch channel, the Spain international attributed his physical vulnerability to an extremely demanding first season, playing 73 games for club and country, which may have contributed to his injury susceptibility. He mentioned his determination to prevent future injuries by working on both physical and psychological levels, altering his diet, incorporating pilates recommended by Carles Puyol, and regularly using a hyperbaric chamber.

During the 2020-21 season, Pedri’s involvement in 73 games across various teams took its toll. Although there’s no specific return date, Pedri remains optimistic, stating on the club’s website that his return will be imminent.

Barcelona is weighing the option of parting ways with Pedri due to injury concerns, despite his immense talent and value to Xavi’s team, in an attempt to generate funds for squad reinforcement during the January window.
