The 18-year old midfielder is keen on playing with Messi as long as possible.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has entered the final few months of his contract with the Catalan giants and will become a free agent at the end of June.
Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are frontrunners in signing the 33-year old forward.
Pedri and a few other Barca youngsters wants to play alongside the great Argentine and we are yet to see whether Messi agrees on a new deal with the Catalan giants.
Pedri told El Club del Deportista: “The first day I saw Messi I thought it was a lie.
“When I was next to Messi, I was very shocked to see him. It was like being on television or a video game, I almost didn’t believe it.
“Playing with Messi is easy because when you give it to him you know that things are going to happen. And that’s what I try to do, give it to them in the best positions so that it is the most beneficial for the team.”
On Messi’s future, Pedri added: “I hope I can be close to him for several years. It would be great if I could continue to enjoy playing with Messi and learn many things alongside him.”
