Pedro ‘would only go to Premier’

Mundo Deportivo report that Barcelona’s Pedro would only leave the Catalan giants to join a Premier League club.

The 27-year-old found his first team opportunities severely limited at Camp Nou last season, following the imperious form of attacking trio Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

With Aleix Vidal having arrived this summer from Sevilla and Barca also reported to be pursuing Atletico Madrid’s Arda Turan, competition for first team places is set to be fiercer than ever next term.

However, the report states that the forward would only consider leaving the Blaugrana for an English team, with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City having the financial resources to meet any asking price Barca may demand.
