It’s easy to see why fans and collectors alike are so mesmerized by the Spanish wonderkid. Despite his age and slight frame, Pedri is a dynamic, hard-working player who possesses outstanding technical skills. Not to mention, he demonstrates an advanced offensive game that will only get better.

Since he left Las Palmas for Barcelona in 2019, Pedri has impressed and immediately put his talents on display. A contributing factor to Pedri’s instant success with Barca was the position switch from winger to midfielder. During his first season at Camp Nou, Pedri showed his youthful enthusiasm by competing in 52 games across all competitions and netted four goals and six assists.

For his incredible efforts last season, Pedri went on to represent Spain at the UEFA European Championship and played for the La Roja squad that participated in the Tokyo Olympics this past summer.
