Luis Enrique has dropped the biggest hint yet that Pedro could be on his way to Manchester United at some point in the near future.

Various reports claimed over the weekend that Barcelona have agreed to sell the 27-year-old to the Red Devils in a deal worth £22.3million.

Pedro is expected to fly to Manchester in the coming days to undergo a medical with a view to completing his long-awaited transfer.

Enrique, who was speaking ahead of Barcelona's Uefa Super Cup tie against Sevilla, admitted that the future of Pedro was likely to be sorted soon.

He told reporters on Monday: "Pedro's future will be resolved shortly because there is not long to go until the transfer market closes."

With his transfer to Old Trafford seemingly around the corner, it would be standard practice for Pedro to be left out of tomorrow's game in the Georgian town of Tbilisi. 

However, with Neymar currently on the sidelines with a nasty case of mumps, Enrique hinted that Pedro would start after playing him alongside Luis Suarez and Leo Messi.

"I've never refused to play any players because of the situation on the market, that's not an aspect I consider"

With another Super Cup–a two-legged tie–against Athletic Bilbao due to start later this week, the Barcelona boss said he would not let transfer talk influence his team selection.

"I want all my players all season, I'm a coach and that's obviously what I want," he said.

"I've never refused to play any players because of the situation on the market, that's not an aspect I consider."
