Barcelona midfielder Pedri: What I'll say to Real Madrid coach who rejected me...

Barcelona midfielder Pedri has again recalled being rejected by Real Madrid.

While with Las Palmas, Pedri had the chance to sign for Real before Barca came knocking.

He said: "I went there and from the first days I couldn't train because there was snow everywhere on the pitches. I trained for three days. I was put with the B team to train, but in the end, they told me that I didn't have the level to stay and that they were going to continue to observe me.

“I am where I wanted to be. At first, you don't like it when you get turned away, but then it serves as motivation to tell you that if they didn't want you, then you have to work to make something happen. I can't remember who turned me down, but if I met him today I would tell him I'm having a blast at Barcelona. Football is like that."
