Barcelona have received no offers for Pedro, confirms Josep Bartomeu

Published 5 Comments

Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu has confirmed that his club have received no formal offers for Spanish winger Pedro, despite claims that his transfer to Manchester United was imminent.

Over the course of the past seven days various sources have detailed how Pedro was deep in talks over a move to England, with the general consensus being that United had already made serious headway with regards to a deal.

However, Bartomeu’s latest offering confirms the worst regarding Pedro’s potential move to Old Trafford, no doubt leaving many United fans wondering quite what’s going on.

Damning update

"We have yet to receive a formal offer for Pedro,” Bartomeu told the press.

“As far as I know, Pedro isn’t leaving. We have yet to receive a formal offer for Pedro.

“I hope he stays because he’s a fundamental player for us and even more so this season when we’re playing for six titles. We need the best players we can possibly have, we’d miss his experience and quality.”

Pedro's stance

It’s safe to assume the player himself is ready to move on given that he’s stuck behind the irresistible threesome of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar, but he’s not going to have a say in the matter until United can agree terms with his club.

Earlier this year it was said his release clause has been lowered to around £20million, and Louis van Gaal can certainly afford that with the handsome transfer kitty he’s been entrusted with for this season.

A deal will be done, surely?

With that in mind it’s somewhat bemusing that a deal isn’t just around the corner, although Bartomeu may well be keeping his cards close to his chest until the move is officially wrapped up.

One thing’s for sure, United could do with a world-class forward to aid Wayne Rooney in goal-getting, and there aren’t many better suited than Pedro.

United fans, do you think there’s a chance you might miss out on Pedro this summer? Is the deal going to go ahead as expected? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
