Pedro to sign new contract in few days

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona winger and Spanish U21 international Pedro Rodriguez Ledesma (22) will sign a new contract with Barcelona in the next few days. Sport claims that the initial draft of the contract would have already reached the player for review and a deal could be struck as early as Thursday.

Pedro would previously have been on the same reserve team contract he signed in 2004, with incentives for appearances with the first team. However, Pep Guardiola would now count on Pedro as a full first team squad member and Pedro would no longer play any part in Luis Enrique's B team squad.

The meetings between the player's representation and Barcelona would have been initiated a few weeks ago and neither side would have foreseen any problems with a new deal.

I hope they include clause that make it hard for other club to snatch him or at least one that be advantageous to us. Unlike the one where lose out on Cesc's.

We didn't have any contract with Cesc and so we lost him...

we lost cesc because of the stupid legislation by which we cant offer contracts to people under 18

My bad. I didn't know that. I thought a youth player entering the academy has to sign a contract. Kind of a "bond" or some kind where a club is reimbursed or something like that like the one mentioned for Pedro, a reserve contract or like that. Again, my mistake.

did barca take some sort of action on the cesc thing? cos like in merida's case, there was some sort of agreement that got breached which is why arsenal paid us something (a reimbursement?) though we had to take them to court to get it..wasnt that also the case with cesc or did we let it pass that one time?

The more Pedro plays the better he looks . Good news for Messi too who can get a breather from time to time , unlike last season !!

I dont think Pedro has the talent to play at Barca.

LOL, that anony above me must have been watching another team that wears read and blue. Basel FC perhaps.

He might just like Busquets last season- another one from reserves who will blossom this year. Saying he's not Barca quality- how many times have you seen him play? And where have you been during Super Caup's first leg? Away game, which wasn't very good on our part. He scored and had an assisst. Yeah, you right- he is probably not good enough...

what a shame,barca has not offerd the guy a senior contract since.he is not a kid anymore,he is the same age as messi and he is one of our first team player.thats good that guadiola wont let him play for the athletics again.he will now have time to concentrate on the first team tactics and co.they now have onyema and rochina,so think they are also strong.i love pedro,but bojan the more.
