Pedro Rodriguez has admitted that there is a possibility he will return to former club Barcelona with the Spaniard’s contract set to expire next summer at Chelsea.
Pedro had progressed through Barcelona’s renowned La Masia academy system before enjoying a trophy-laden spell under Pep Guardiola.
His five-year spell in England appears to be coming to a close, and the winger hopes that a reunion with his former Nou Camp team-mates could now be on the cards.
And according to several reports, the hierarchy at Barcelona still hold Pedro in high regard and may be open to offering him a role in Ernesto Valverde’s squad.
“Everyone knows what I feel for the club and it’s evident that it’s a possibility to go back,” Pedro told Cadena Ser Catalunya. “I’ve always said it.
“It’s a club I have special love for because I support them. I’ve had so many experiences there and was there so many years, I feel loved by the fans.
“It’s an option that’s always there and that I hope could happen.”
But when questioned over which figure among the Barcelona top brass would make the decision whether to allow Pedro to return, he admitted he was unsure.
He added: “I don’t know if it’s in the hands of the president, the coach or whoever.
“I think for them my return is difficult but it’s clearly a possibility.”
Speaking on former teammate Lionel Messi, Pedro who scored 99 goals in his 321 appearances with Barcelona, tipped the Argentine to top the rankings for the greatest ever player.
“I think Leo Messi is going to be the best player of all time,”Pedro said.
“Yes, I also think that some Golden Balls have been lost along the way and that he could have even more.”
During his time at Barcelona, Pedro won five LaLiga titles, three Copa del Rey, four Spanish Super Cups, three Champions Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups.11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
