According to Spanish publication, Marca, Manchester United are set to complete a €30m deal for Pedro Rodriguez.
The Barcelona forward has told his teammates that he wants to join a club where he can play week in week out and has informed the club hierarchy of his desire to leave.
Manager, Luis Enrique appeared to be reluctant to let him leave, but the player is determined to get a move after being starved of game time at Camp Nou. The condition for Barcelona letting him leave was someone willing to meet his release clause and the player wanting to leave.
It seems everything is finally falling in place for Pedro’s move to Manchester United.
Marca claim that United are willing to meet his release clause and the player’s desire to join is no secret.
Pedro would certainly be a great addition to Manchester United, who are lacking pace and goals from wide areas. The Barcelona man can operate anywhere across the front three as well as an attacking midfielder behind the forward.
His versatility and goalscoring could be a huge asset for Louis Van Gaal, as the Dutchman looks to lead United towards the title in his second season in charge.
Earlier Van Gaal confirmed there might be a surprise striker signing. The former Barcelona manager could very well have hinted at a deal for Pedro, who can operate as shadow striker or a false nine.
