Pedro admits desire to return to Barca

Chelsea’s Pedro makes surprise confession about former club Barcelona

October 27, 2016 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
Pedro Rodriguez's latest interview is set to attract sharp reactions from some Chelsea fans.

Chelsea forward Pedro Rodriguez has revealed that he was tempted to rejoin his former club Barcelona last summer. The 29-year-old joined Chelsea in the summer of 2015 on a four-year contract and scored on his debut for the Blues against West Bromwich Albion. He has since scored eight league goals for the Stamford Bridge outfit in 37 appearances. 

But after being benched for quite some time due to a series of injuries, the Spaniard seemed to have fallen out of favor with the West London club, and was contemplating a move back to his former club, Barcelona. He told RAC-1:

“I spoke to [Barcelona president Josep Maria] Bartomeu and it looked as though I’d return to Barcelona last summer, but I think the talks were given more importance than they really had.

“It is difficult to return, even with everything you remember from your old club. If you asked me if I’d like to go back, my answer is obvious, because it is a great club where I have great teammates and a fanbase that appreciates me.

“I’ve always said I’d like to retire at Barcelona but it is very difficult, almost impossible at this point.”

The winger played a key role on his 50th appearance for Chelsea last weekend when he scored the fastest goal in the Premier League with just 30 seconds played against rivals Man Utd. But the Blues were bundled out of the League Cup by West Ham earlier today after going down 2-1 at the London Stadium.
