Sergio Busquets admits conversation with Pedro

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets has admitted that he has held a private conversation with teammate and friend Pedro, as the Spanish international continues to be linked with a move away from the Nou Camp. 

As reported by The Sun, Busquets has insisted that he wants the 27-year-old to remain at the club for 'many years', but has admitted that the wide-man wants to play on a more regular basis. 

Pedro, of course, has endured a tricky time at the Catalans in recent time, having failed to hold down a permanent position in the side, with the trio of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Unsurprisingly, then, the Spaniard has been linked with a move away from the club in recent time, with the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea reportedly interested in his services. 

It's far from certain, however, as to whether either club will press ahead with a move for the player, who has a buyout clause of £22 million in his contract. 

Uncertain future 

Busquets, though, isn't entirely sure if he will be playing in the same side as Pedro next season, as he stated: “I have spoken to him. But I won’t tell you what he said. It was a private conversation.

“He is my friend and team-mate — I would want him to stay for many years. He wants to play more and get more minutes. That’s what he wants.

“But we are in a team of great players and it’s hard for him. Finally it will be his decision but I hope he stays.”

Time to move on 

Ultimately, Pedro has achieved it all in Spain, having secured glory on both the domestic and European scene. Now, then, in the prime of his career, he must be selfish and think about himself when making a decision over his future. 

At Barcelona, with the incredible talent at the club, he's never going to be handed the opportunity to play week in, week out, so now may well be his time to move on. 

And if either of Manchester United or Chelsea step up their interest in him, then he should most definitely consider a switch to England's elite division. He'd make a wonderful signing for either club, and would no doubt thrive on the prospect of starring on a regular basis in England's elite division. 

He's guaranteed silverware at the Nou Camp, but he's not guaranteed a regular role - and that should take priority at this time.
