Barcelona make Pedro mistake when wishing him a Happy Birthday

Published 5 Comments

The long-term future of Pedro has been the subject of much debate in recent time, with the Barcelona man seemingly wanted by the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Today, though, is one to celebrate for the Spanish international, who turns 28-years of age, so his club took to social media to congratulate him on his special day...

They made a rather amusing mistake, however, as they ultimately tagged in the wrong Pedro, leaving their fantastic midfielder completely out of the tweet.

As you can see below, rather than tagging in @_Pedro_17, they wished @_Pedro17 a Happy Birthday. An easy mistake to make of course, but comical nonetheless.

Pedro and Co., of course, will currently be in preparation mode ahead of their clash with Premier League outfit Chelsea, which will commence at 2am in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Of course, the showdown with the Blues will give Pedro another opportunity to play against one of the sides linked with his signature after he played in Barca's 3-1 loss against Manchester United on Saturday evening. 

It's time to move on 

Of late, of course, it's Manchester United who have seemingly moved ahead of their rivals in the race to secure Pedro's services, and perhaps it's the ideal move for the wide-man, who is clearly in need of a new challenge. 

Ultimately, in La Liga, the Spaniard has won it all and enjoyed incredible success, but now, at 28, he's in need of playing week in, week out, and should look to test himself on English soil. 

Manchester United may well be the ideal destination for him, too, with Louis van Gaal seemingly putting together quite the squad at Old Trafford. He'd certainly fit in at the Theatre of Dreams and would no doubt thrive under the Louis van Gaal regime and philosophy. 

Of course, he may well come in as a replacement for ex-Real Madrid man Angel di Maria, and he'd no doubt prove a bargain for the Red Devils, as they go about making an impact on the domestic and European scene next term.
