Summer can be the perfect time to rest and let yourself go a little after a long and hard season. However, there are those who decide to push against this pattern -- especially in the modern game -- and Barcelona youngster Pedri has returned to the club’s preseason training with a surprising new physique as a perfect example.

Pedri pumped for preseason

There was an image that went around social media showing the 20-year old totally exhausted after playing a total of 72 across the 2020-21 season. These included those for Barcelona in the league, cup and Champions League, but he also had those for the Spanish U-21 national team in the European Championships and the Olympic Games. Phew!

However, there is now a new look that is going viral. The social media team at Barça wanted to reflect it with the image that they published on their Instagram account. An image in which you can see the midfielder training with his biceps fully pumped and defined. And it seems as though his club were impressed too, as the accompanying caption read: “Pedri’s arms”, along with an emoticon of a surprised face.

Pedri pic pushes two million likes

Cule fans are loving it, the thought of an incredibly skilful kid bulking up to take on the world, while some rival fans have commented that he should choose their club instead.

At the time of writing, the image is nearing two million likes, far exceeding the accounts usual engagement, and it includes other light-hearted messages such as “What is Pedri eating?”

Now all we need to see is the player in action, once again likely to have a busy, busy season...
