Pedro has admitted that it would be a shame for Barcelona if Cesc Fabregas joins Chelsea this summer.

The Spain international has been heavily linked with a return to the Premier League in recent weeks as Barcelona attempt to raise funds to buy Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke.

It will be a shame for the club if he joins Azpilicueta. It will be pity

Earlier this week, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was caught telling Spain head coach Vicente Del Bosque that Fabregas has agreed a £27m move away from Camp Nou this summer.

Barca and Spain forward Pedro is keen to see Fabregas, who returned to his boyhood club in a £32m deal from Arsenal in 2011, remain at the four-time European champions.

“Cesc is a great player and has performed well for us,” Pedro told Marca.

“I do not understand at all (about the move).

“He is happy and focussed and I’ve not talked to him.

“It will be a shame for the club if he joins Azpilicueta. It will be pity.”

Fabregas scored eight goals and made 13 assists in 36 La Liga games for Barcelona this season.
