The Camp Nou board is not interested in selling Francisco Trincao and Pedri, the duo had offers from the Premier League, according to report in Mundo Deportivo.
President Josep Maria Bartomeu was also asked about the two youngsters on Tuesday in an interview with RAC1 and said: “I really want to see Trincao and Pedri.”
