Barcelona may be fighting a losing battle when it comes to keeping hold of Pedro Rodriguez as the club's secretary Robert Fernandez has admitted the forward wants to leave.

Pedro fired Barcelona to a thrilling 5-4 victory over Sevilla in this evening's UEFA Super Cup final, scoring the winning goal in extra-time in what Fernandez concedes could be his final match for the club.

Fernandez explained to Esport 3: "Pedro has told me he wants to leave.

"The buy-out clause in Pedro's contract is not negotiable, but this [the UEFA Super Cup] could be his final game", he added, referencing the €30m release clause in the forward's contract.


Pedro has been strongly linked with Louis van Gaal's Manchester United, who are looking to replace the departed Angel di Maria.


However, Manchester City have also been showing interest in the Spain international in a move which could complicate matters.

Nevertheless, Barcelona are adamant that Pedro will not leave the Camp Nou until his full buy-out clause is met.

The Catalan giants are keen to keep Pedro, however the forward has grown frustrated at a lack of playing time at the club and wants first team football week in, week out.
