Pedri’s records as an early bloomer
Pedri officially became an FC Barcelona player on 20 August 2020. The young Barca player was only 17 years old when he was presented in Auditori 1899 and the year he turned 18 proved to be one to remember. Thanks to his collective vision for the game, age proved no barrier to Pedri becoming a starter in midfield.
Pedri played 53 games wearing the Barça jersey during the 2020/21 season. This made him the player to feature in the most matches for Barça – an unprecedented achievement in recent years. The Canary Islands player also won the Copa del Rey during his first year with FC Barcelona.
