Barcelona star Pedri opens up on partnership with Gavi


Barcelona starlet Pedri has been discussing his partnership with teammate Gavi.

After years of largely poor recruitment, losing Lionel Messi and ending up in a financial mess, Barcelona have been forced to look to youth to help revive their squad.

La Blaugrana have a number of promising young talents on their books at present, with the crown jewel most certainly Pedri.

The 19-year-old joined Barcelona in 2019 and, after spending a season back on loan with Las Palmas, has taken the Camp Nou by storm.

Pedri had a superb 2020/21 that ended with him being named as Euro 2020’s Young Player of the Tournament.

The teenager’s 2021/22 was then derailed by injury, but he has returned to action and is once again shining with Barca.

Along with Pedri, Barcelona have another very promising young midfielder on their books.

That player is 17-year-old Gavi who has, despite his tender years, already featured of 36 occasions for La Blaugrana this term.

And Gavi, along with Pedri, is expected to form two third of Barca’s midfield for many years to come.

Now, the latter of that duo has been discussing his relationship with Gavi and his hopes for recreating the infamous Barcelona midfield pairing of Andreas Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez:

"Let's hope we can be a duo like Xavi and Iniesta but it will tough to repeat what they did," said Pedri before describing his relationship with his fellow teenage midfielder. "I have a special relationship with him and I really appreciate him, he has great potential," he concluded.
