FC Barcelona are ready to sell Pedro Rodriguez for €30 million according to Spanish newspaper AS

With Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United among the potential suitors, Barcelona will supposedly be willing to sell the Spanish international, whose contract runs down in 2016, or risk losing him for free.

Pedro is seemingly unhappy with the lack of opportunities in the first team since the arrival Uruguayan hot-shot Luis Suarez, who signed from Liverpool for a reported £75m in the summer.

Attacking options

Manager Luis Enrique has been persistent in starting Neymar, Lionel Messi and Suarez in a world-class attacking trio up front, which has understandably damaged Pedro's chances starting regularly.

The Barcelona youth team graduate has played an accumulative total of just 1626 minutes in all competition this season.

“I have a contract, but one can never tell what may happen," he was recently recorded as saying.

English interest

Premier League managers Jose Mourinhio, Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger are reported to be paying close attention to Pedro's contract situation.

With his current contract completing its course in the June of 2016, an estimated fee of around €30 million is being cited as a sum that Barcelona officials would agree upon before opening any door for negotiations. 

AS are also claiming Arsene Wenger's Arsenal in particular remains the favourite destination for Pedro after revealing that the north London outfit had made several enquiries last summer.
