“All good players should be at Barcelona!” : Agent Pedri teases fans by suggesting his Spanish team-mate Marco Asensio leave Real Madrid to join their La Liga rivals on a FREE transfer after his impressive World Cup outing against Costa Rica

Pedri cheekily suggested that his Spanish team-mate Marco Asensio join him at Camp Nou when his contract at Real Madrid expires, insisting that “all good players must be at Barcelona”.

Asensio joined Madrid in 2015 and is now in his eighth season at the club, but starting opportunities have become more limited in recent years, with Carlo Ancelotti having an abundance of attacking talent to choose from at the Bernabeu.

His contract is due to expire next summer and it is currently unclear whether he will stay at the club or look for a new challenge. Pedri has teased the idea that Asensio should look to move to Barcelona on a free transfer if he decides to leave Madrid at the end of his contract.

“It remains to be seen what will happen with Marco Asensio’s contract, but I think all good players should be at FC Barcelona,” Pedri said. El Partidazo de COPE.

“However, I’m not really cut out to do these things, to convince anyone.”

Pedri’s comments come after Asensio shone in Spain’s World Cup opener as they beat Costa Rica 7-0.

Asensio started up front for Luis Enrique’s side and scored the team’s second goal, producing a well-placed finish off Jordi Alba’s cross.

It was only his second goal in 32 appearances for the national team but showcased the quality he possesses.

Pedri claimed he won’t try to convince Asensio to join Barcelona, ​​but he could have time to work his magic on the 26-year-old while the pair are on international duty, especially with Spain seemingly ready for a deep run in the tournament after their impressive performance in their opener.

If Asensio were to move to Barcelona, ​​he would become the latest star to play for Spain’s two biggest clubs.

The list of players to feature for both clubs is illustrious and includes Brazilian Ronaldo, Michael Laudrup, current Spain boss Enrique and the most controversial Luis Figo, who dramatically chose to leave Barcelona to join Real Madrid in 2000.
