Having paid an initial sum of €5 million to Las Palmas for the signing of Pedri, the youngster has exceeded all expectations since joining Barcelona.

Despite the massive leap to top-flight football, Pedri instantly made an impression and has continued to grow in importance. He won the Golden Boy Award and Kopa Trophy after merely his first season at the club.

As a consequence of the Canary Islander’s increasing worth to the squad, he has played innumerable games for the Catalan giants, with the club recognizing him as an undisputed starter.

However, the more Pedri plays, the heavier the burden is on Barcelona’s pockets. Due to bonuses and clauses attached to the deal, the fee Barcelona must pay to Las Palmas has gradually increased over the years.

Barcelona must pay €5 million more

Indeed, according to SPORT Pedri started against FC Porto in the Champions League group stage and played all 90 minutes.

As such, FC Barcelona paid a new bonus of €5 million to Las Palmas, as the midfielder reached his 100th game as a Blaugrana, playing at least 45 minutes.

Even so, Barcelona anticipated paying this sum already, considering he concluded last season by playing 95 games with a minimum of 45 minutes.

Now, it is reported that Las Palmas have already reached a figure close to €26 million for the transfer, among the various concepts that were stipulated in his contract.

Lastly, there is one more benefit that Las Palmas could potentially benefit from, though it appears highly unlikely for them to do so at this time: the fifteen percent reserved for a potential capital gain in the future.

Pedri’s termination clause is valued at a total of one billion euros, meaning that, should Barça approve his sale, the Canary Island club could receive as much as €150 million.
