Chelsea forward Pedro is keen on a return to Barcelona and has held initial talks with the Catalan giants.
Pedro moved to Stamford Bridge in a £22million transfer from Barcelona last summer, signing a four-year deal to join the Blues, but he struggled to make an impact in the Premier League, scoring just eight goals in his debut season in England.
Having previously revealed that he misses Barcelona, the Spain international has confirmed that he has held talks with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu regarding a possible move back to Camp Nou.
"Hopefully (I can return to Barcelona), I know it's difficult, I spoke with the president when we saw each other at the Cup final and I also spoke with all the people who love me there," he told beIN Sports.
"It's complicated, but I've always said I would like to retire at Barca.
"The years have passed and Barca have some of the best players in the world, it's a very demanding club and coming back is complicated, but I can't rule it out.
"I spent 11 or 12 years in Barcelona, my family are there and a lot of my friends, as well. The fans love me a lot, I felt valued by the club, and it's always very tough to leave the club of your dreams.
"Ultimately, I had to make that decision because I saw that my chances had become exhausted."
