Pedri has been talking about how Real Madrid had the chance to sign him a few years ago when he spent some time with Los Blancos.

However, the 17-year-old is due at Barcelona this week from Segunda Division side Las Palmas and says is was always his dream to play for the Catalan giants.

“Two or three years ago I went to take tests with Real Madrid. I was there a week but they told me to keep working, they didn’t count on me and didn’t want to sign me.

“Last year, when I started pre-season with Las Palmas, before finishing it I had signed for Barca, it was my dream since I was a kid. Much better that Barca called me and I had this opportunity.”

Barcelona will get the chance to see what Pedri can do in the next few weeks ahead of the start of the league season which should determine whether he stays with the first-team next season or heads out on loan to play more regularly.
