Manchester United and Liverpool have been handed a massive boost in signing Barcelona's Pedro after the forward admitted that he is still unsure over his future at Camp Nou beyond the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old has been a £26m target for the Red Devils, while their arch-rivals Liverpool, along with Arsenal are keen on landing the Spain international. He has scored 15 goals and managed seven assists in 37 league appearances last season.
Pedro has made it to Vicente del Bosque's 23-man shortlist for the World Cup in Brazil. The Spaniard remains unconcerned over his future at Barcelona and wants to focus on the upcoming summer event with his national side.
"I'm not sure what's going to happen, I'm relaxed and concentrating on the team and the World Cup. When I need to decide something, I'll talk to the club and we'll see what happens," Pedro told the Spanish newspaper Marca.
"But I'm relaxed and I don't know anything, I'll carry on concentrating on the team and on playing well in the World Cup."
Pedro's teammate Cesc Fabergas's future at Barcelona is also unclear and has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in recent times.
United have long been interested in securing the services of the former Arsenal skipper.
Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho admitted his interest in signing the midfielder. Pedro says it would be a real shame if Barcelona allow his compatriot to leave this summer.
"I don't really understand it, he's such a great player who plays really well for us. I haven't talked about it with him, he's happy and focusing on the team. If he goes, it'll be a real shame for Barça," Pedro stressed.
"People have the right to judge every now and then, but for me as a teammate it doesn't make sense. Cesc always gave one hundred per cent, he's had a great season and his stats are good for goals and assists."
"We didn't have a successful season because we didn't win anything, but I don't understand why all the criticism is directed at one player. Cesc is professional and he's always shown it," he concluded.
