Barcelona star Pedro Rodriguez has fuelled speculation about a summer exit from the Camp Nou after recent reports in Spain claimed he was considering a move to the Premier League , with Chelsea, Manchester United and especially Arsenal monitoring the situation.
The 27-year-old winger was said to be very close to a move to the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2014 as Gunners manager Arsene Wenger had him on his shopping list, even ahead of Alexis Sanchez.
However, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique convinced the Spain international to stay at the Camp Nou by assuring him he would play an important role. But with Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar unmovable up front, Pedro has only managed to start 12 La Liga games this campaign.
Spanish newspaper AS claimed earlier in March that the Spaniard was once again considering putting an end to his career at the Camp Nou.
According to the reports, both Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and United boss Louis van Gaal would welcome him, while the player's preferred destination would be Arsenal.
Furthermore, with his contract set to expire in summer 2016, the Catalans will reportedly part ways with him for a fee of around €30m (£22m, $32m).
When questioned recently about his potential exit, Barcelona assistant director of football Carles Rexach said: "Pedro is highly valued here, very important for Barça. I don't see Pedro away from Barça."
But the forward has now added fuel to the rumours by voicing his frustration about his lack of playing time, while confirming he may consider a departure in the summer.
"It's obvious that it's difficult to nail down a place in the team. I have had few opportunities this season but I have to wait and when they do come, take advantage of them," the Spain international said.
"I'm going through a difficult moment in the team. I'll evaluate my future at the end of the season and I'll speak to the club, but right now I'm centred on the team and with enthusiasm to play and to do well when I do."
