Luis Enrique has said there have been no developments in the proposed move of Pedro to Manchester United and that he wants the winger to stay at Barcelona.
Manchester United executives are already on their way to meet with the Catalan club’s officials for signing the Spain worldwide.
Enrique has now repeated that he wants the 28-year-old to stay in Spain, although he admits he will let the player leave if he asks.
“I bumped into his mother in a furniture shop and she told me that Pedro was going to England”.
Both players showed a real return to form in 2014/15 but will have to be at their very best to once again make themselves regulars in the Dutch coach’s starting eleven should Pedro finalise his move. “Nothing has changed. Any changes will be dictated by him“.
The Hammers are desperate to land a striker this summer and the impending arrival of Barca star Pedro could prompt Manchester United to sell swiftly.
They report that Edurne said: “Now, when you arrive in Madrid, everything will be easier”. There are certain players with problems, not important problems, but they could have an influence. Though his experience and ability to dictate games could prove to be the difference for Van Gaal, the midfielder will have to overcome his injury concerns in order to have an impact, much in the manner of Michael Carrick who turned 34 in July. We’re excited about the Gamper, the Super Cup and the start of the season.
However, Mascherano remains a key figure at the Camp Nou and has just been elected Barca’s fourth captain by his teammates. “There are other players who, without being captains, have a voice inside the dressing room”.
