Manchester United want to complete the signing of Barcelona winger Pedro before offloading striker Javier Hernandez in this transfer window.
This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that the Red Devils are hoping to secure the services of the Spanish international this week, while Mexican ace Hernandez could leave the club in favour of a move to West Ham United for £12 million.
Hernandez, of course, spent last season out on loan at Spanish giants Real Madrid, where he failed to hold down a regular spot under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti.

Now, then, back at Old Trafford, despite earning himself a place on the bench in the club's opening-day Premier League victory over rivals Tottenham, Chicharito looks set to depart the club on a permanent basis.
His future, though, may well depend on Pedro, who the Red Devils have tracked for some time, as Louis van Gaal goes in search of improvement in his front line.
Let's be honest, Hernandez's permanent exit from Manchester has been coming for some time, but the potential signing of Pedro should excite the United faithful.
Ultimately, the 28-year-old will offer so much to the cause in England: quick, creative and hard working, the Spaniard will prove a fine threat for the Red Devils when on the attack and in defence.
Alongside Memphis Depay, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney, Van Gaal will finally have the right balance in attack if he lands the Barcelona man imminently.
