Mundo Deportivo, Radio Catalunya/TV3 and Sport all reported that Ed Woodward had travelled to Spain to wrap the deal and end what was becoming another transfer saga.
United, nevertheless, are more likely to seek out room to accommodate Pedro given they’ve misplaced Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria this summer time.
Pedro’s victor that helped Barcelona clinch the UEFA Super Cup with a 5-4 victory over fellow Spanish club Sevilla did little to alter the atmosphere at Nou Camp as both Enrique and Pedro hinted that a move away from Spain was the likely outcome. “The truth is that I had a good chance to play“.
The Barcelona winger struggled for first team action last season with the attacking trio of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar proving too stiff a competition for the Spanish worldwide.
However, El Mundo Deportivo are now reporting that the Manchester United Chief Exec has returned home to Manchester already, with no agreement in place.
I think Pedro would be an excellent signing for United as he’s capable of playing anywhere across the front three and despite not always being a regular, he’s still managed to score 99 goals in 320 appearances for Barca, so he’s certainly bring an added goal threat.
