Further, Van Gaal claimed that his side is in need of creativity and after the departure of Di Maria, Pedro’s addition becomes all the more important.
The Barcelona attacker is not only a good scorer, but an intelligent creator as well.
Pedro has already informed Barcelona and his teammates of his desire to leave.
The Spaniard has grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of chances at Camp Nou and wants regular football.
Van Gaal has assured the player of regular chances at Old Trafford next season.
Manchester United Transfer: Proven winner
United are set to compete in the Champions League next season and are in desperate need of top quality attackers to bridge the gap with European elite.
Although Pedro is far from a world class player, the Spaniard is good enough to improve the United attack and will be a much needed improvement on the likes of Young and Valencia.
