The Catalans have completed a long list of high and drops to reinforce his staff and prepare to the youngsters to assume responsibilities in the future, doing in passing with several perlas that could give a lot that speak in some years in the Camp Nou.

One of the incorporations sounded in the inferior categories is the one of Pedri, arrived of the UD ThePalms . With hardly 16 years, the midfield player has been an important bet of the culés, that have invested 5 million euros in his contracting with a series of variables that could fatten the traspaso until the 25 'kilos'.

In several interviews has recognised to be impressed with his talent, and with the capacity that has to stand out in front of players a lot greater that he, something that confirmed when Pepe Mel carried it to him with the 'greater' to test him in front of challenges more demanding.

In a conversation with the newspaper 'Sport', has described to the recently arrived to the City Condal: "there are few youngsters to this age that can handle the balloon with so much clairvoyance, control the balloon and at the same time look with the head raised and hit the best situation of game. Besides, it is sacrificed in his game, although it was to an upper level to the rest thinks in the community, and puts the leg, does not scare ".

"It can play by the two bands without any problem, because it is ambidiestro and handles very all the profiles. Even, also it can situate in the mediapunta. In the Juvenile B hartó to mark goals and I when I saw him play darse that in the one against one can go out you by the two sides, what does even more complicated to the marker be able to stop it", has specified.

Questioned by a star with which compare him, the one of Santa Lucía does not have doubts. "It remembers me to Iniesta when it began and had the age of Pedri.

Ángel recalca that the signing can go out him cheap to the Barça, and thinks that the youngster and his surroundings have the feet in the floor: "I by what know is a very calm and serious boy, that has the head very very furnished. It is not of those that believe it to him or go of smart, is espabilado but in the terrain of game, was is respectful. So much his family as also his representatives are directing very well to the youngster".

"For me, Pedri is a winning horse and when it win strength and experience will go to more. It likes me that it adapts easily to the new situations, when it happened of the juvenile B to the Division of Honour immediately began to compete, afterwards in the first team. But it is necessary to have care, not to give him already all the responsibility, the weight of the attack. Triumph in the Barça is not easy, the big do not have patience, cost him until to Messi! But ojalá achieve it, will be very good for all", has wished.
