Liverpool wants to sign Pedri next summer from Barcelona

FC BARCELONA

Liverpool will be searching for reinforcements in the summer but it’s looking like Pedri won’t be one of them.

Liverpool will spend big under Arne Slot but that won’t include a move for Pedri. Pedri won’t be joining Liverpool from Barcelona with a deal thought to be “completely quiet”. Fabrizio Romano confirms Pedri committed to Barcelona.

Liverpool are set to spend big under Arne Slot to avoid any teething problems upon the Dutchman’s arrival at Anfield – but whilst there could be a decent-sized pot of money to spend, it won’t be splashed on a “surprise” move for Barcelona midfielder Pedri, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Pedri has burst onto the scene for Barcelona over the past four years, but became notable for winning the Golden Boy award back in 2021 at the age of just 18; and incredible feat for any footballer.

Pedri loves Barcelona, and will not join Liverpool at any condition

His form has seen him linked with moves abroad, and Liverpool thought to have been chasing the diminutive midfielder ever since he became a regular in the Barcelona side. But Romano believes that is a move that won’t happen for a multitude of reasons.

Writing in his Daily Briefing, Romano said that despite links touting the Spaniard with a move to Merseyside, Pedri is “commit” to Barcelona, and there is nothing doing in terms of him joining the Premier League outfit. He said in response to the surprise story:

“Despite what has reported elsewhere, I can guarantee that there is nothing between Pedri and Liverpool, or between Liverpool and Barcelona for Pedri – the situation is completely quiet. Pedri is really happy and always super committed to Barcelona, and he’s a crucial part of the project at the Nou Camp.”

Pedri has previously linked with a move to the Reds, with fees of £70million bandied about in the past;

Though with Barcelona having a superb young team that boasts the likes of Gavi, Pau Cubarsi, Lacine Yamal and more, offering minutes to their youngsters could kickstart a new era similar to the La Masia-heavy period of dominance.
