Pedro set to be a Manchester United player by 1st September

Published 4 Comments

Pedro has been linked with Manchester United all summer, and it seems the speculation is heating up with reports from the Nou Camp suggesting Pedro no longer wants to be a Barcelona player.

The Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has admitted that he is trying to convince the Spanish winger to stay where he belongs; with his La Liga side, and to reject any advances made by the English club.

Enrique has revealed that Pedro is not happy with the amount of game time he is being given due to the amount of high class players in the Barcelona squad, and feels a move away will give him the opportunity to play a more permanent role.

Difficult situation

Pedro confirmed to Catalan television: "It's a difficult situation for me. I don't want to go but it's a question of playing time, of continuity in the team, it's been this way for a few years now."

Pedro sat on the bench for most of the Super Cup tie on Tuesday against Spanish rivals Sevilla, but came on in extra time to score the winner. He then went to stand apart from his team mates during the cup celebrations after the last minute win.

Good value

Red Devils flop Angel Di Maria has parted ways with the club to join Paris Saint-Germain, Louis Van Gaal looks set to want the 28-year-old Spaniard as his replacement.

Barcelona president Josep Bartomue has said he does not want the player to go, but confirms the decision was made last season when Pedro confirmed he would like to leave at the end of the campaign.

Pedro's buy out clause dropped significantly with this news from €150m to an astonishing €30m with Barcelona agreeing to let him go if the figure was met.
