Washington: A transfer of Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona to English club Chelsea will be "a pity" for his current club, his Barcelona and Spain teammate Pedro Rodriguez said Thursday.
"I've not talked with Cesc as yet. He's a very good player for us. If he leaves it would be a shame for Barca," Pedro said as Spain prepared for a World Cup warm-up friendly in the US capital against El Salvador on Saturday.
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique had let the cat out of the bag over a supposed 33 million-euro ($45 million) move by Fabregas while chatting with Spain manager Vicente del Bosque at a press conference in Washington.
