Pedri has brazenly suggested that his Spanish team-mate Marco Asensio should leave Real Madrid next summer and join rivals Barcelona on a free transfer, insisting that ‘all the good players should be at the Camp Nou’.

Asensio joined Madrid in 2015 and is now in his eighth season at the club, but starting opportunities have become more limited in recent years, with Carlo Ancelotti having an abundance of attacking talent to choose from at the Bernabeu.

His contract expires at the end of the season and it is currently unclear whether he will stay at the club or look for a new challenge. Pedri teased the idea that Asensio should look for a free transfer to Barcelona if he decides to leave Madrid at the end of his contract.

“It remains to be seen what will happen with Marco Asensio’s contract, but I think all the good players should be at FC Barcelona,” said Pedri. El Partidazo de COPE.

“But I’m not into doing those things, convincing someone.”

Pedri’s comments come after Asensio shone in Spain’s opening game of the World Cup as they beat Costa Rica 7-0.

Asensio started up front for Luis Enrique’s side and scored the team’s second goal, resulting in a well-placed finish from Jordi Alba’s cross.

It was only his second goal in 32 appearances for the national team, but it highlighted the quality he possesses.

Pedri has claimed he won’t try to convince Asensio to come to Barcelona, ​​but he could have time to work his magic on the 26-year-old while the pair are on international duty, especially with Spain looking for a deep run in the tournament after their impressive performance in their first game.

If Asensio moved to Barcelona, ​​he would become the latest star to play for Spain’s two biggest clubs.

The list of players for both clubs is illustrious, including Brazilian Ronaldo, Michael Laudrup, current Spanish boss Enrique and most controversially Luis Figo, who dramatically chose to leave Barcelona to join Real Madrid in 2000.
