Pedro: Barca have had big offers for me

Barcelona's Spain forward Pedro has revealed the La Liga champions have received offers for him after agreeing to reduce the size of his buyout clause amid reports he is poised to join English champions Chelsea.

A World Cup and European Championship winner with La Roja, Pedro, 27, lost his place in the Barca starting line-up following the arrival of Uruguay striker Luis Suarez last year.

Barca coach Luis Enrique used Pedro mainly as a substitute last term and he came on in the Champions League final to set up Neymar to score the third goal in a 3-1 win over Juventus.

Chelsea are keen to sign the youth academy product, who has retained his place in the Spain squad, and are prepared to pay the new buyout fee of €30million, down from €150million, according to reports in Spain.

Pedro was quoted as saying he was in "a difficult situation."
