Barcelona are reportedly considering selling Pedri after the midfielder suffered yet another injury setback at the weekend.

Pedri pulled up with a muscle problem just before half-time in Barca's bore draw with Athletic Club, appearing to suffer the ailment when curling a pass into the path of Raphinha on the right flank.

The midfielder has since been diagnosed with a "quadriceps injury", with manager Xavi Hernandez admitting that Pedri could be out of action "for a long time".

Despite being just 21 years old, Pedri has missed 69 games in his short career due to various hamstring injuries - notably missing three months of action this season already after limping off during a training session in late August.

Due to Pedri's consistent injury troubles, AS are reporting that La Blaugrana are desperate to find a solution to his struggles. While ideally the club would like to keep hold of the young midfielder, the report states that one solution which isn't ruled out is cutting loses and selling Pedri in the future.

Although injury prone, if Pedri were to be put on the market he'd undoubtedly garner plenty of interest from Europe's top clubs. Reports stemming from Spain have previously suggested that Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have previously considered bids for the dynamic midfielder, with AS stating back in June 2023 that the latter had an ambitious €100m offer rejected by Barca.

Barcelona have also been heavily linked with a number of potential midfield signings ahead of the summer transfer window. Arsenal star Jorginho is said to be "delighted" with the interest shown in him by the Catalan club.
