Pedro Gonzales Lopez started at the youth ranks of Las Palmas and at the age of 16 was promoted to the first team. He is the youngest goalscorer in the club's history.

A move to Barcelona FC followed in the summer of 2020, where Pedro is part of the club's post Messi era rebuild, together with other young stars such as Ansu Fati.

Pedro Gonzales Lopez is better known to fans and media as just 'Pedri'. He got this nickname for the very simple reason that there was another Pedro in his class growing up and because of his slender figure he was called Pedri. The name stuck to this day.

Pedri is an intelligent and very hard-working footballer. He can dribble, pass and use both of his feet equally well. Being a very highly technical playmaker with a vision, he earned the comparisons with other Barcelona stars of his frame size such as Xavi, Iniesta and Messi himself. Pedri usually plays a free-roaming role on the team with no strict position. This freedom in football is reserved only for the most talented players and especially so at Barcelona and the Spanish national team.

Speaking of the Spain national team, Pedri is the youngest player ever to represent his nation at the European Championship. He was included on the 2020 Team of the Tournament as the only Spanish player. Pedri also played at the 2020 Summer Olympics, making it two international tournaments in one summer for the youngster.

Pedri sure seems to have a bright future ahead of him and we look forward to seeing what he can accomplish over the years.
