Barcelona have rightfully taken criticism for their transfer dealings in recent years, but the transfer of Pedri should still be a success even if he goes on to trigger various add-ons to his former club.
He’s looked brilliant at times this year and he’s featured in every single La Liga game so far so he’s clearly central to their plans going forward.
He can play on either wing or through the centre so there could even be hopes that he goes on to become an Iniesta type player who makes things happen from the centre of the pitch.
Barca did manage to sign him for a low price because he was so young and untested at the top level, but a report from Marca has indicated how much the deal could really be worth.

Las Palmas will get a huge fee for a player who had barely played for them before he was sold, and Barca have a potential star of the future who would cost much more if he was signed as the finished article.
