Manchester United's latest offer for Barcelona winger Pedro is worth €25 million plus an extra €5 million in add-ons, according to reports in Spain.

It seems as though a move for the Spanish international is close after Barcelona's defeat to Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup last night, with chief executive Ed Woodward currently in Spain to wrap up a deal.

Reports in the Spanish press this morning are carrying details of the talks, including the offer put forward by Manchester United.

The winger has a release clause of €30 million which Manchester United are willing to pay, but only in a structured way. 

Catalan newspaper El Mundo Deportivo report that United’s offer is €25 million plus €5 million in incentives. They add however that Manchester City have made a superior offer worth €30 million with an extra €2 million on top, which could cause problems for the Red Devils.

The news of Woodward's arrival in Barcelona has made headlines closer to home too, with the Times claiming that Manchester United are hopeful that they will have a deal tied up by the end of this week.

Signings

If the deal does indeed go ahead it will represent the club's sixth summer signing following the arrival of Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero.

So far Louis van Gaal's side have claimed two wins out of two in the Premier League, and will look to take a giant leap towards qualification for the Champions League when they take on FC Brugge this evening.

Do you think Pedro is good enough to take the place of Angel di Maria?
