FC Barcelona winger, Pedro, has stated that he is uncertain about his future at the club amidst growing talks of a move away from the Camp Nou.

The 26-year-old is not sure whether he will be a Blaugrana player next season citing the lack of oppurtunities in the starting eleven as the main reason behind his unhappiness.

Since Neymar’s arrival at Catalonia, Pedro has struggled for game time particularly in big matches. And he has made it clear that he would have preferred to play more in those decisive fixtures.

Talking to AS, Pedro said, "I don't know [if I'll stay]." 

"I'm happy at the club, but I don't know what the future holds for me. I'd rather have played more, especially in big games, where I featured less.

"Overall, I ended up happy because in the games where I played, I was able to help the team a lot. We'll see what happens next year.

"It's not easy to get into the Barcelona team. The coach decided to use other players and I respect his opinion. I don't hold any grudges," he added.

However, Pedro, impressed with Luis Enrique’s work with Celta Vigo, believes that he will be a good replacement for the departing manager Tata Martino.

"I think he'll fit in well. He has the advantage of knowing the intricacies of the club," he said.

"Luis Enrique is a coach with character, with clear ideas."

Pedro, who has scored 19 goals in all competitions this season, has his eyes set for Brazil as he hopes to impress for his national team Spain at the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

"We are the champions and we'll try to win the title. It would be nice to do it, but the competition out there complicates it.

"The most important thing in this type of competition is to progress, but it's preferable to finish first in your group because it gives you more confidence for the knockout stages," he added.
