As Barcelona's season comes to an end, the team is a clear and strong contender for all three titles and the triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr. rounds into a scary shape, there is one guy who's not that happy.
Pedro Rodríguez has been a consistent piece of the squad since the glorious Pep Guardiola years, and his contributions have certainly been overlooked by fans and analysts who don't think of Pedro as a reliable backup forward. The reality is that he is, and it would hurt to lose him next season. And that is probably going to happen.
Following the game against Rayo Vallecano (which he started on due to Neymar's yellow card ban), Pedro gave an interview to beIN SPORTS and he expressed a bit of frustration with the lack of meaningful minutes, and a summer move away from Camp Nou to a place where he can be a starter is not off the table.
"I'm going through a tough time at Barça, it is clear that it's hard for me to find a bigger role on the team. You can see all season that I haven't been getting many opportunities, but I'll have to wait for them and give my best when my number is called.
"I will think about my future and talk to the club at the end of the season, but as of right now I'm focused on giving my best and doing well for the team."

Well, it's looking like Pedro is not going to be a Blaugrana for long.
