It continues the talismanic captain’s run of bad luck, as he is currently unavailable for Los Blancos through injury.

Barca to extend Pedri deal

Barcelona are considering offering a new contract to teenage midfielder Pedri, according to a report from RAC1 as per El Mundo Deportivo.

The teenager’s current deal expires in 2022 although the Blaugrana have an option to unilaterally extend that agreement through to the summer of 2024, which now appears to be an inevitability.
