PEDRO LOOKS MORE OUT THAN IN AT FC BARCELONA

Speculation concerning the future of Spanish International & FC Barcelona winger Pedro have been ongoing & today are back in the Sports media. Local papers are picking up the vibes from British press that states that Manchester United & Chelsea have shown interest & are considering targeting the winger for next season

FC Barcelona

The player has fallen into a secondary role at Barçwith in the incorporation of Luis Suarez. Pedro has commented that he is a Barça player & if any offers do appear that he will study them jointly with the Club. The novelty today is that FC Barcelona has apparently put a market price on the winger, 30M€.

The player privately has his own personal preference, Arsenal FC. Last season the English Club made "calls" to get the winger over to London, calls to which Pedro ignored. Will Arsenal FC call again?

Stay tuned, the future of Pedro looks more out of Barcelona than in.

Both Sevilla FC & Atletico de Madrid will be disappointed with their 0 - 0 result. Sevilla let of the hook a very poor Atletico Madrid, while the visitors will not be happy with their Football & lack of ideas. 

Sevilla FC dominated the 1º half & could have done the damage had they been more effective; Iborra hit the bar. The 2º half saw Atletico retain a bit more Sevilla FC but little else. 

Shared points that will disappoint both, as Sevilla FC loses distance in their attempts to get & secure Champions League table positions, while Atletico allows Valencia CF get closer to them on the ladder- just 1 point away now.

Liga Soccer 2015

Serious slip by Real Madrid against a very good Villarreal drawing 1 - 1 in their match. Great match by the visitors which never allowed Real Madrid to really settle. The game swayed in favour of one team then went the other way. Entertaining stuff with intense Football especially the final 15 mins as both looked for the victory. 

It was also the night of the goalkeepers, especially Villarreal Sergio Asenjo who made some exceptional saves keeping out the home team & Ronaldo. Real Madrid goalie Casillas also did not fall short as he made some match saving interventions as well. 

The goals tonight came through Cristiano Ronaldo in the 52nd min converting a penalty, & the equalizer for Villarreal through Gerard in the 64th min. 

Shared points, which puts the Liga back on fire, with FC Barcelona closing the gap with current leaders Real Madrid to just 2 points. This makes the upcoming "clasico" between both on March 22 & possible title decider.
