Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has said Pedro Rodriguez has a decision to make over his future at the Nou Camp, amid speculations linking him with Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The Spanish international winger has been a crucial player for the Catalan side during recent years but saw his playing time restricted last season following the arrival of Luis Suarez from Liverpool.
Pedro recently admitted his frustration about the situation and revealed that despite having recently signed a new deal to commit his future to the club they agreed to reduce his release clause – with a view to a summer move.
"It's true, we agreed to reduce the value of the buyout clause and it's true there are offers," the player said earlier this month, as quoted by Sky Sports.
The Telegraph reported last week that Manchester United have earmarked his signing as a top priority for the summer and are ready to meet his £22m ($34m) release clause in order to beat both the Merseysiders and the Blues for his signature.
Jose Mourinho has denied Chelsea are interested in the Spaniard, while Louis van Gaal later suggested that he is in for a "surprise" signing rather than "the striker that the media has written about."
All in all, it seems that if Pedro does decide to leave the Nou Camp, the club will not try to stop him.
Luis Enrique himself has confirmed talks with Pedro regarding his future at the club while claiming the winger will make the final decision – although insisting someone will need to meet his buy-out clause first.
"I've said that if Pedro goes it will be when someone has paid his clause. If that doesn't happen, it will be difficult. I have spoken with Pedro. I told him what I think and he told me what he thinks. When the player makes a decision something will happen. The decision belongs to Pedro," the Barcelona manager was quoted as saying by Marca after his side beat LA Galaxy 2-1 in their first game of the pre-season.
