Barcelona have officially signed another promising starlet, Las Palmas midfielder Pedri.
Pedri is considered to be one of the best starlets of his age. In July, he was offered a professional contract with Las Palmas which set a solid release clause. The teenager became the first Las Palmas player to earn a professional contract with the team. After that, he started training with the main squad.
He went on to make three senior appearances for the team and has drawn rave kudos from Las Palmas veteran, Jonathan Viera.
"He has something special, and a promising future awaits him," Viera admitted.
"It's been a long time since I've seen a player like that here."
Last season, the 16-year-old even scored 9 goals, alternating the games for Palmas' A and B youth sides.
