Pedri has emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in the world in recent months.
He joined Barca from Las Palmas in 2020 and was immediately successful, playing 53 games under Ronald Koeman in the first season.
Pedri played Real Betis and became the fourth youngest Barcelona goal scorer in LaLiga after Ansu Fati, Bojan Krkić and Messi.
He also played a vital role in Spain, advancing to the semi-finals at Euro 2020, after which the team won the silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
In a statement, the club described it as “a tough year, miles of time, but one is rewarding.”
Pedri is one of a group of young people who want to lead a new era in Barcelona, including Fati, Gabi, Sergiño Dest, Eric Garcia, Ronald Araúho and Nico Gonzalez.
