In the sea of bad at least one good news for Barcelona fans. Pedro Gonzalez Lopez, already known as Pedri in the football world, signed a new contract and tied the future to the giant from the Nou Camp. A new talent of La Masia confirmed this Thursday the cooperation until June 2026, and it should represent the next big project of the Catalans who have suffered big problems since Lionel Messi left them.
They saw salvation in the child, who played last season (as many as 52 games at the club level and 12 at the national team level), so they decided to keep him as long as possible. They believe that in the period of the next five years, the central midfielder will develop so much that he will be able to carry the Barça game without any problems.
So far, he is only a young man, although he is extremely appreciated. Stories have already started circulating about how one of the financially powerful clubs, primarily from England, could kidnap him. That is why Barcelona reacted and put a buyout clause in the contract, which has never been the case.
Round 1,000,000,000 euros, instead of the previous 400,000,000. The previous record-holder was Antoine Griezmann with 800,000,000 euros.
Whoever wants to buy Pedri in the next five years will have to put his hand in his pocket deeply Pedri's signature is the first in a series when it comes to the talents of the famous Barcelona school.
The Catalans are working hard to extend their cooperation with Ansu Fati and there is a good chance that the young offensive midfielder will initial a new contract, after which they will go on the offensive against Gavi, another midfielder, recently extraordinary in the semifinals of the League of Nations when Spain defeated Italy.
Sergi Roberto, Ronald Araujo, Ousmane Dembele are also in line for new signatures ... It is obvious that the management of Barcelona has other plans and that this time they want to put all the focus on the young players and give them a chance they have not had so far.
It seems that with the departure of Messi and the financial crisis that followed at Camp Nou, the club's policy changed. We will see if the young players will be able to show all the talent they have and if Barcelona can still rely on them.
So far, their football school has proven to be one of the best, we have no doubt that this time it will be the same case
