The 27-year-old lost his place in the Barca starting line-up following the arrival of Luis Suarez last summer with the Spanish champions having agreed to reduce the size of his buyout clause.

According to reports in Spain, Chelsea are keen to sign the forward, who only last month penned a new four-year contract, and are prepared to pay the new buyout fee of 30million euros after it was reduced from 150million.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique used Pedro mainly as a substitute last term and he came on in the Champions League final to set up Neymar to score the third goal in a 3-1 victory over Juventus.

Pedro, who has been linked to Arsenal and Liverpool, has been quoted as saying he was in “a difficult situation” but added that he had not spoken to Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho and was looking forward to starting pre-season training with his Barca team-mates on Wednesday.

“It’s true, we agreed to reduce the value of the buyout clause and it’s true there are offers,” he said.

“I don’t want to think about the future, I want to rest, remain calm, start pre-season on Wednesday with the squad and we will see what happens after that.”
