On Wednesday, PSG confirmed the signing of Angel Di Maria for a bargain price of €46 million, leaving the right flank of Manchester United's attack, empty. The Argentine has left a big hole in the attack of the Red Devils, which can be only be salvaged by making the right transfer at the right price.
Pedro is the leading contender to become the ex-Real Madrid's successor. A very highly experienced wing man, Pedro provides speed, fluctuation and flow of a typical counter attack.
With three Champions League trophies, five La Liga's, three Copa Del Rey's, two CWC's, a World Cup and a Euro Cup to his CV, Pedro undoubtedly carries a lot of experience on his shoulders.

With the arrival of Neymar in 2013, and the development of Alexis Sanchez into a full grown wing man, Pedro was being a target of many clubs, but still had his heart sold to Barcelona. Next came the arrival of Luis Suarez, which was a twist in the tale for the Spaniard, but was still given hope with the departure of Alexis to Arsenal.
With the ban of Luis Suarez still going on, Luis Enrique only had one option but to look at Pedro for filling in for the absentee, but didn't seem to convince the manager. And with the arrival of Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal, it surely looks like his time at Barca is up.
Pedro had formed a deadly trio with David Villa and Lionel Messi, back in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 campaigns. He is reportedly having a release clause of €30 million, which is very less compared to what he is capable of.
Is he Manchester United's man?
To be fair, yes. Pedro would be the right fit for the Red Devils. He has been out of shape due to lack of playing time, but if given so, he will surely be back at his best. His chemistry with fellow Spaniards Ander Herrera and David De Gea has been up to date with their good friendship during international duty.
Manchester United were lacking a lot of flair and charm in their attack last season, for which they have been looking for a cure. Pedro's arrival will definitely be the imminent cure and he may as well be the reason for the Red Devils rise once again.
