“Pedri has been touched by a magic wand and worth more than 1 billion”

Pedri sees his career has taken off, while FC Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta is particularly happy with the eighteen-year-old midfielder. The Catalans held a press conference on Friday due to the extended cooperation until mid-2026.
Sometimes I realize it‘s not normal what I’m going through, says Pedri, quoted by Spanish media. I want to give and fight everything for this logo, as much as I can. I hope I can play here for many years to come. The club is in a tough situation, that‘s right, but it’s still the best club in the world. We will set up and accomplish wonderful things.
Laporta is lyrical about the Spanish international and revokes ‘a big day’. We are very proud, because we see very well that this is a historic moment. I hope Pedri retire here. I think he should follow in the footsteps of greats like Xaxi and Andrés Iniesta. Pedri is worth even more than his one billion euro escape clause. Pedri is a talent touched with a magic wand.

Thank you @Pedri for trusting in your team. We are very proud of having you at Barça, we will always stand by your side! pic.twitter.com/gYIo5y4D1x

BartomeuLaporta also seized the possibility of handing out a sneer to predecessor Josep Maria Bartomeu, who had defended himself from all criticism earlier today. He is a desperate person who now sees what a huge disaster he has made of it. More than that.
