Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward flew to Barcelona earlier today in an attempt to complete the signing of Barcelona winger Pedro.
This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that Woodward is hoping to secure the deal sooner rather than later, as Louis van Gaal continues to change the dynamics of his squad at Old Trafford.
In fact, the same report goes on to claim that the deal has been slowed down after interest from United's Premier League rivals Chelsea, but it now appears that the Red Devils' hierarchy are ready to pay the £22 million that it will take for the Spaniard to sign for the club.
It has been well documented that Pedro wants to leave the Nou Camp behind after failing to maintain a regular place in the starting XI under the guidance of Luis Enrique.
The player could, then, star in his final game for the club on home soil this evening, as the Catalans go about overturning a four nil deficit against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup.
There's no doubt about it, Pedro really would prove a fine coup for United, as they continue to improve under the Dutch regime. Ultimately, the Spanish ace, who has achieved so much in the game, would no doubt slot in perfectly at Old Trafford, as he'd only accommodate those around him.
Van Gaal, of course, only wants to sign players to fit in with his philosophy, and Pedro could do just that, as he'd work hard for the team, while proving a wonderful option when on the attack.
Perhaps, then, we will be seeing the talented midfielder in the red shirt of United very soon. One thing's for sure, it looks set to be an interesting couple of days for Woodward, who will be hoping to return to Manchester with the signature of another high profile name.
