This follows the previous report, stating that the Bavarians were seeking to capitalize on Barca’s financial woes by inquiring about Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, Marc-André ter Stegen, and Sergino Dest.
While Pedri might sit atop the list, it sure looks like the youngster is going to be staying in Catalonia for quite a while:
According to Sky information, top talent Pedri of FC Barcelona is soon before a contract extension. It is said that good talks have been held. The new contract will probably include a significant salary increase.
FC Bayern was already considered a target for the 18-year-old midfielder a year ago. Although the contact to Munich is not completely broken off, however, Pedri prefers to stay in Barcelona, it is said.
At his age, Pedri is a player that FC Barcelona can reasonably reach a deal with — even in the clubs unhealthy financial state. Even if Bayern Munich is willing to chip in and “help” FC Barcelona by raiding its pantry in exchange for a few shekels, it is doubtful that the Catalans would let their club figurehead of the future leave, just to make a quick buck.
