‘All good players must be at Barcelona!’: Agent Pedri teases fans by suggesting Spain team-mate Marco Asensio should leave Real Madrid to join their LaLiga rivals on a FREE transfer after his impressive World Cup outing against Costa Rica

Pedri has cheekily suggested that his Spain team-mate Marco Asensio should join him at the Nou Camp when his contract at Real Madrid expires, insisting that “all good players must be at Barcelona”.

Asensio joined Madrid in 2015 and is now in his eighth season at the club, but starting options 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 next summer, and it is currently unclear whether he will stay at the club or look for a new challenge. Pedri has teased the idea that Asensio should look for a move to Barcelona on a free transfer if he decides to leave Madrid at the end of his deal.

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

“But I’m not much for doing things like that, to convince anyone.”

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

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

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

Pedri has claimed he will not try to convince Asensio to join Barcelona, ​​but he may have time to work his magic on the 26-year-old while the pair are on international duty, especially with Spain looking set to take a deep run in the tournament after their impressive display in their first game.

If Asensio were to move to Barcelona, ​​he would become the last star to play for the two biggest clubs in Spain.

The list of players for both clubs is a glorious one that includes Brazilian Ronaldo, Michael Laudrup, current Spain boss Enrique, and most controversially Luis Figo, who dramatically opted to leave Barcelona to join Real Madrid in 2000.
