Barcelona winger Pedro has given Manchester United three days to sort out his future or he will pull the plug on a move, according to reports in Spain.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with the 28-year-old in recent weeks following the departure of Angel di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, but so far they've yet to agree a fee with Barcelona.
Pedro is said to have a €30 million release clause written into his contract but as it stands the Red Devils haven't activated it and have chosen to try and negotiate a fee with Barcelona instead.

Reports this morning say that Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is currently in Barcelona to negotiate a deal and has put forward a package of €25 million plus an extra €5 million in performance-based incentives.
The major worry for Manchester United is that fierce cross-city rivals Manchester City are said to be interested and have put forward a bigger offer.
Now Mundo Deportivo claim that Pedro has grown tired of the posturing from his suitors and wants his future sorted as soon as possible.
The Spanish source add that he wants Manchester United, his preferred club, to make an acceptable offer and complete the deal before the end of the week, otherwise he will remain at the Nou Camp. Reports in the British press this morning claim that Woodward is confident of getting a deal done in time before the transfer window closes, with the fee believed to be at around £22 million.
El Mundo Deportivo also report that boss Louis van Gaal has grown tired of the saga and has asked Woodward to offer the full release clause in order to get it wrapped up in time for the home tie against Newcastle this weekend.
