Pedri, a promising footballer from Tegueste, Tenerife, began his career playing for his hometown team before moving on to Laguna Youth and eventually joining the youth teams at UD Las Palmas in 2018. In the 2019/20 season, he was a regular starter for the first team, playing 34 Segunda División A games and scoring four goals.
Although FC Barcelona and Las Palmas agreed to Pedri’s transfer on September 2, 2019, he didn’t officially join the blaugranes until August 2020. In his first season at the club, Pedri made 52 appearances and scored four goals, earning him the Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy awards. Despite an injury-hit second season, Pedri confirmed his status as one of the world’s best midfielders.
Pedri quickly made an impact on the Spanish national team and was named Player of the Tournament in the 2020 European Championships. In 2022, he was part of Spain’s World Cup squad, which made it to the last 16.
