The Spain international, who is a part of Vincente Del Bosque’s Euro 2016 squad, won five La Liga titles, three Copa del Reys and three Champions League titles with the Catalans before signing for Chelsea last summer in a £19million deal.
But the 28-year-old struggled to impact at Stamford Bridge, in no small part due to his arrival coinciding with Chelsea’s miraculous slump in form, finishing last season with a decent if unspectacular eight goals across all competitions
But it appears Pedro already has one eye on leaving the west London club after confirming his intentions to re-sign for Barcelona – although is unconfirmed whether the 2010 World Cup winner was speaking about the summer transfer window or looking further into the future.
As quoted by LES, he told French publication beIN Sport; “Hopefully (I can return to Barcelona) but I know it’s hard. I have already spoken about it with the President when we (Barcelona) were in the (Cup) final (when Barcelona beat Sevilla 2-0 last month) and spoke to all the people who want me there.
“It’s complicated, but I’ve always said that I would like to retire at Barcelona. However, I know it’s difficult because the years go by and the club has the best players in the world, it is a very demanding club and to return is complicated. But I do not rule it out either.
“I had been 11 or 12 years in Barcelona, my family is from there and also many friends. The fans loved me, I felt very valued around the club, and it’s always hard to leave the club of your dreams.”
