Catalan’s president rubbishes transfer gossip.
Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has denied that French giants Paris Saint Germain have lodged a big money bid for attacker Pedro Rodriguez, Sky Sports reports.
Over the weekend reports in Spain had suggested that the Ligue 1 champions had lodged a bid €40 million for the 26-year-old to try and bring him to the French capital.
However, on Wednesday Rosell was quick to tell the press that there was no bid by saying; “There is no offer from PSG for Pedro.”
The 31-cap Spanish international has spent nearly 10 years at the Nou Camp and has expressed his desire to stay with the club.
He said in Marca: “I’m only thinking of triumphing at Barcelona, but it its an honour that other clubs look at you.”
Pedro first broke into the Barcelona team in 2008 after climbing through the ranks of the B and C teams connected with the side. Since then he has gone on to make 217 appearances for the Catalan giants, scoring 70 goals.
He is already making an impact this season with two goals in three games.
Pedro was a part of the Spanish side that won back-to-back world and European cup success and earlier this year notched the solitary goal against France to keep them on track for Brazil next year.
