Barcelona midfielder Pedri has sent a message to Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio, telling him that “all good players have to be at Barcelona.”

Asensio’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, and although he has expressed a willingness to sign a contract extension, he has openly flirted with a move to Barcelona.

Although, he later stated that his words were “misinterpreted.”

With no new contract on the table, Asensio remains linked with a free transfer to Barcelona.

While Pedri did not want to make a direct plea to Asensio, he could not resist sending a clear message to his Spain teammate.

“He has a lot of quality, let’s see what happens with his contract but all good players have to be at Barça,” Pedri told COPE when asked about Asensio.

“Let’s see what happens with his contract but he has plenty of qualities. It is a decision that he has to make.”

Asensio had previously refused to rule out making the move across the Clasico divide but publicly changed his tune in a recent interview, in which he insisted he wants to remain in Madrid for a little whole longer.

“Hopefully it can happen and I’ll be very happy at Real Madrid for many years, hopefully everything will be given to stay for ten more years,” he told Marca.
