Chelsea star Pedro has indicated interest in returning to boyhood club Barcelona.
Pedro, who has three years left on his current contract at Chelsea, came through the youth ranks at Barcelona and won five La Liga titles and three Champions League crowns.The 28-year-old, is currently on international duty with Spain at Euro 2016, was signed for £22m from Barca last summer, but struggled to make an impact during his debut season in the Premier League.
“I have already spoken about it with the president (Josep Maria Bartomeu) when we (Barcelona) were in the (Cup) final (when Barcelona beat Sevilla 2-0 last month) and spoke to all the people who want me there.It’s complicated, but I’ve always said that I would like to retire at Barcelona. However, I know it’s difficult because the years go by and the club has the best players in the world, it is a very demanding club and to return is complicated. But I do not rule it out either.”

“I had been 11 or 12 years in Barcelona, my family is from there and also many friends. The fans loved me, I felt very valued around the club, and it’s always hard to leave the club of your dreams,” he added.”But I have explained before in the end I had to take this decision because I saw that the possibilities (of playing) were low.”
