Similar Type of Player: It’s been extremely hard to miss the hype around Pedri since Barcelona have snapped him up. The comparisons have been thrown around left right and centre, and one name keeps cropping up that cannot be ignored: Andrés Iniesta. When you watch how easy Pedri makes transition phases look, the execution of a key pass and his ability to hold onto possession you can see exactly why. Barcelona have signed a real gem.
Footy Files says
One word to describe Pedri’s style of play? Effortless. His movement, his passing, his awareness, his very mature reading of the game and confidence in using both feet. He may not walk into the Barcelona side next season, but he’ll be on the periphery. I wouldn’t rule out the anticipated loan offers and seeing him being phased into the squad throughout the season.
