Pedro: Determined to stay at Barcelona

Pedro: Determined to stay at Barcelona

The 25-year-old has scored five goals in 25 Primera Division matches this season, and seven in 40 in all competitions, as Barca regained the league title but were hammered in the Champions League semi-final by Bayern Munich.

Pedro told Marca: "I wish I could contribute more, but I'm happy with the opportunities I've had and want to keep improving.

"I try to work and help my team-mates. This year I may have contributed less and I hope the next season is better."

With thoughts turning to the summer transfer window and Barca linked with Brazil playmaker Neymar, Pedro acknowledges his future at the Nou Camp is uncertain.

But he said: "There are always changes and many players have left, but my clear intention is to stay here. I have to wait to see if the club decides to sell me, but I am calm.

"(Neymar) is a great player and the club want the best in the world. His arrival would be a great joy because we would be very strong.

"It would mean more competition in attack but it suits me well personally because I'm still learning. Hopefully he can come."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
