thumbnail Hello,

The winger says he will make a decision over his next move if and when he needs to do so, while criticising supporters for making Cesc Fabregas a scapegoat for last season

Barcelona winger Pedro has admitted he is unsure if he will still be at the club next season but insists he is only focusing on doing well with Spain at the World Cup.

The 26-year-old has flourished for the national side during qualification but was regularly substituted for his club last season, despite featuring in 37 of the Catalan giants league games.

The lack of first-team opportunities at Barca has resulted in Pedro being linked with a move away from the Spanish giants this summer.

However, the Spain international has admitted that while he does not know where his future lies, he is not worrying about the situation.

"I'm not sure what’s going to happen, I'm relaxed and concentrating on the team [Spain] and the World Cup,” Pedro was quoted as saying in Marca.

“When I need to decide something, I'll talk to the club and we'll see what happens. But I'm relaxed and I don't know anything, I'll carry on concentrating on the team and on playing well in the World Cup.”

Pedro could follow team-mate Cesc Fabregas out of the Camp Nou door this summer after Premier League champions Manchester City and Chelsea both tabled €35 million bids for the out-of-favour midfielder.

The forward is bemused as to why fans have criticised the 27-year-old so much and believes Fabregas shouldn’t be used as a scapegoat for Barcelona’s lack of success last season.

"I don't really understand it, he's such a great player who plays really well for us. I haven't talked about it with him – he's happy and focusing on the team. If he goes, it'll be a real shame for Barça,” Pedro said.

"People have the right to judge every now and then, but for me as a team-mate it doesn't make sense.

“Cesc always gave 100 per cent, he's had a great season and his stats are good for goals and assists.

“We didn't have a successful season because we didn't win anything, but I don't understand why all the criticism is directed at one player. Cesc is professional and he’s always shown it.”
