Osasuna wants Pedro on loan

Navarra regional newspaper Diario de Noticias claims that Osasuna is interested in Barcelona wing attacker Pedro Rodríguez Ledesma (21).

Osasuna would already have contacted Barcelona to ask for Pedro and although Barcelona didn't reject the request, a transfer will depend on what will happen later this summer.

The Spanish first division club would like to sign Pedro on loan and wants to include in the deal a buy option at the end of the season as well as a future buy back option for Barcelona.

Barcelona manager Josep Gardiola would think a loan could be a good option for the further development of Pedro but the decision will only be made if the coach knows what will happen in cases like those of Hleb and Ribéry.

nope no way uh-uh
We've already let go Xavi Torres, there are rumors about jeffren leaving on too but not him, hes 100% talent. Sorry but you stay!

I think he should leave on loan, it would be the best for him. He won't play much next season, for him it will be the same as last season, maybe even worse if we really buy a new winger.
Let's face it, neither Pedro nor Jeffren will become starting players. They won't reach the class of Messi or Iniesta and they haven't got the talent of Gai or Bojan, who are even a few years younger. So loan them out to clubs where they can play and gather some experience, so they might become good backups in the future or we can at least sell them for a passable price.

I dont think we will sell pedro, most likely he will leave for free when his contract is up. he is 21 already and has messi bojan and gai ahead of him already competing for spots. The same goes for jeffren. I think pep gave him the run out in the champions league final so he could have the memory as opposed to bojan and muniesa who will probably play in a champions league final again before the end of their careers. I think it would be good for him to go on loan to osasuna, barca isnt just about developing talent for our youth team, we are about giving these youngsters a chance to play football and earn a living weather it be at barca or elsewhere. Look at arteta and luis garcia. Neither of them were good enough for us but both of them have had success elsewhere.

I have to disagree. Unlike Xavi Torres who was probably a career B-team player on Barcelona. Pedro actually has enough talent to play in La Liga. Whether he can win a spot on Barcelona's first team, who knows. A loan will be good, but if we don't get a winger we could do worse than having him to be the second or third guy on the bench.

Loan him, so we can sell him later !

He is not good enough.
He got a great technique, nice moves but he has no vista.
He plays alone with the ball, not seeing his teammates.

I hope he can find his place in a smaller team from la liga

wtf he's great!Loaning doesn't much help unlike common belief here...He should stay, Messi isn't going to play 50 games the whole season!Anyway this guy is going to become great!

I loved watching Osasuna this year. They were very good but consistently failed to get results by the tiniest margins. It was the second most exciting thing to watch in La Liga this year, in my opinion.

In the second half of the season, Masoud Shojaie finally broke out and became a very influential player for them. He is just settling there and will be their star soon. It is incredible how his playing style is similar to Pedro. But he is a bit ahead of Pedro technically and tactically and is just solidifying his RW/RS position. It might sound ridiculous, but I highly doubt Pedro will get that much more playing time at osasuna.
