Barça’s latest signing Pedri gave an interview to the Spanish news outlet SPORT recently. The 17-year-old talked about Barça’s chances in the UCL, his future at the club, interest from other clubs, and much more.


On his new club
“I believe I will fit in well at Barça because of the way they play. I’m known for taking on defenders, which in turn creates more space for my team.”

On his ambitions at his new club
“The priority is to play. I want to play and succeed at Barça. If the club doesn’t think I’m ready, the best option for me is to go out on loan.”

On interest from other clubs
“Some very interesting offers have come for me from some German clubs. They really want me on loan and Barça are aware of it. These clubs think that I can be key for them and gain some experience with them.”

On his mentality
“Pressure of performing? No, it’s just football, like I’m playing with friends. There are players who start strong and end with nothing. I am mentally prepared for anything. The only thing I wouldn’t forgive myself for is ceasing to be myself.”

On Barça’s Champions League chances this season
“While the results might say otherwise, Barça has the best squad and for me are still the favorites to win the Champions League. I am sure they will give their all.”

On Barça B
“I hope Barça B can achieve promotion because playing in Segunda is good for your development as a young player – just like it was for me with Las Palmas.”

Just in: Neymar’s entourage confirms renewal with PSG as he ‘likes the project’

Fabrizio Romano has broken huge news as part of Neymar’s contract situation with Paris Saint-Germain, which all but officially announces that the Brazilian will be staying in France, contrary to what has been reported recently. The report suggests that that he will sign his extension soon, which is bound to include a massive UCL bonus.

Neymar’s entourage have confirmed his decision to stay with the Paris outfit in conversation with France Football, saying, “Neymar wants to stay at PSG. He sees that the club is growing. He likes the project.”

PSG have, in fact, actually enjoyed success in Europe in the recent past. They reached the Champions League final last season, crumbling only to the unstoppable Bayern Munich by a mere one goal to nil. Since then, they have fired Thomas Tuchel, and hired Mauricio Pochettino, who inspired an incredible victory against Bayern in this season’s Champions League quarters. Spearheaded by Neymar and Mbappe, the capital-side hit the defending champions for three goals, conceding two.

Despite their lead in the UCL, they do not have a stronghold on the trophy with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid still in the running. It becomes a lot more problematic when you realise their situation in Ligue 1.

PSG look far from comfortable in the league, which is a shocker to say the least. As it stands, Pochettino’s mean are in second place with 66 points, three adrift of Lille who top the table with one of the most impressive defensive records in Europe.

A season without either of the big trophies might force Neymar to have a change of mind, with the Barcelona project looking much more comprehensive under Joan Laporta. In fact, the new President might look at the Brazilian as the key that will allow Lionel Messi to stay at the club. We do the same rumours annually, so it is only fair if any of these ‘confirmations’ are turned on their head in the coming weeks.
