Luis SuA?rez has urged FC Barcelona team mate Pedro to remain at the club amidst interest from Manchester United and Chelsea FC.
Pedro’s future at FC Barcelona has been subject to intense speculation despite the player signing a new deal in the summer.
The arrival of new signing Arda Turan to add to the already existing trio of Neymar, Messi, Suarez means Pedro’s chances might be limited at the club.
The player himself was quoted saying earlier that he was unsure about his future.
Luis Suarez wants Pedro to stay
Pedro has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea FC in the media off late. But, Luis Suarez has urged his FC Barcelona team mate to stay at the club.
a Pedroa s thing is an individual decision,a SuA?rez told Marca. a Hea s had many years at the club, he has won many titles and his decision will be respected.
a But as a team-mate, obviously, I want Pedro to stay because of the importance that he has on a group level.a
Where could Pedro’s future lie?
Both, Manchester United and Chelsea FC would be attractive options for Pedro
Whilst recent reports claim Manchester United are favourites for the Spanish winger, earlier reports in Catalan media stated Chelsea FC are leading the race a with Pedro allegedly having had conversations with manager Jos Mourinho which the player later denied.
However, manager Luis Enrique has stated that he sees Pedro as a part of his future and wants him to stay, with Pedro echoing the sentiments of the manager whilst acknowledging that he had received offers to move elsewhere.
One would think that Pedro will use these coming six months till Turan is ineligible to play for FC Barcelona to see where he stands and could decide his next move in January with the club also more open to letting him go with Turan available as a back up to the “MSN” trio.
