Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal recently echoed the importance of having a player with such unique talent like his by saying, “Barcelona have the speed of Neymar and Messi – and they have Pedro behind them”.
Manchester United executives are already on their way to meet with the Catalan club’s officials for signing the Spain global.
“Neymar and Messi have returned with a very good physical basis”.
While there have been conflicting claims as to whether Pedro’s contract contains a clause permitting him to leave for €30 million, it has been widely reported that the Spain worldwide would be allowed to move on if Barca received a bid of that value. “Last season, we all know, he could not play until October and that was a handicap”, the coach told a news conference. “He’s shown how good he is for both club and country”.
Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Barcelona attacker Pedro, according to the Daily Mirror. 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. “They may play some minutes tomorrow”, he said, Mundo Deportivo reports.
“There are other players who could captain the side, but he was chosen by the players and that’s how I like it”, Luis Enrique said.
“We’re prepared to deal with problems that may arise over the season”. I want it to look like the team in the Supercup but all the players have been doing build-up work so no players arrived back starting from zero.
