Barcelona forward Pedro has alerted Manchester United by admitting his future at the Camp Nou remains uncertain. The 26-year-old Spain international could follow the Chelsea-bound Cesc Fabregas to the Premier League this summer.
In an interview with Mundo Deportivo, the diminutive winger conceded: "I don't know what will happen with my future. When something has to be decided I will talk to the club and see what happens."
Pedro was a favourite of former Barcelona head coach Pep Guardiola, who brought the Spaniard through from the B team when he took over the Catalan giants in 2008. He played a pivotal role in the most successful period of the club’s history, winning a haul of trophies under the current Bayern Munich boss as well as a couple with Guardiola’s successor Tito Vilanova, who tragically passed away earlier this year.
While Pedro also featured prominently under Tata Martino this season, scoring a total of 19 goals in 54 appearances, he often started on the bench - with the Argentine coach, who was recently replaced by Luis Enrique, usually opting for a three-pronged attack comprised of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Alexis Sanchez in the big matches.
Barcelona’s decision to recall exciting young winger Gerard Deulofeu means Pedro’s future as a guaranteed starter at the Camp Nou now seems even more unlikely - and the Spaniard could be tempted to move to England, with United and Liverpool both preparing bids for his services. It’s believed that Arsenal are also keen.
Pedro has scored a total of 87 goals in 268 matches for the La Liga outfit and is a favourite with the club’s supporters, so securing his services will not be a straightforward task for the Premier League trio, however.
