Pedro Rodríguez slightly opened a door to a comeback to Barça in an interview to BeIN Sports that provoked a lot of speculations: "Hopefully, I know it is difficult, I talked to the president [Bartomeu] when we saw each other during the Copa del Rey final and I also spoke with everyone who likes me there. It's complicated, but I've always said I would like to retire at Barça. Years are going by and Barça have the best in the world, it is a very demanding club and coming back is difficult, but I don't rule it either."

The day after, his entourage has already limited the options he has to come back at Camp Nou in statements made to As. The reasons are clear. First, the high wage Pedro is earning at Chelsea could not be assumed by Barça for a fourth forward. Secondly, Pedro left for 30 million euros to the English club and it would be hard for them to lower the price.

As for the competition, Pedro has already said many times he left Barça because he wanted to get more game time and feel important. If he were to return to Barça now, he would have a lot of trouble playing, considering Luis Enrique still thinks the trident, formed with Messi, Suárez and Neymar, is untouchable.

According to his entourage, an hypothetical Pedro return to the Blaugrana club would most likely happen a few years from now when he retires as a footballer. Aged 28, the Canary Islands player still believes he can be a major player in another club and is leaving to the future a return to the team that made him go from 'Pedrito' to 'Don Pedro'.
