Will Pedri become one of the biggest bargains in history?
Barcelona spent five million euros last summer to lure Pedri from Las Palmas in a transfer that is already considered by many as a big bargain for the Blaugrana, with the youngster showcasing his talent whenever he is given the opportunity to step onto the pitch. There are several players who have been signed by European clubs and whose initial value now seems disproportionally lower than what they were purchased for.
