Manchester United & Arsenal target Pedro ready to quit Barcelona

Pedro Rodriguez is ready to quit Barcelona after growing disillusioned with life at the club, according to Fifa agent François Gallardo.

The Spanish international has played an important role for Barcelona in their league and Spanish Cup campaigns so far this season but has been shoved aside for the majority of their Champions League games.

Gerardo Martino has opted to play Neymar and Alexis Sanchez in Pedro’s left position and the latter is set to take on an even greater role in the coming seasons, leaving Pedro out in the cold.

According to Gallardo, Pedro is growing increasingly angry at the Nou Camp and could leave in the near future.

"Pedro is very angry this season,” Gallardo told La Sexta.

"The player is in a difficult situation and may be sold, although it could be a bad move for Pedro."

If Pedro does decide to leave Barcelona, he would have no shortage of suitors despite the fact he has a staggering £125m clause in his contract.

Manchester United have been linked with an interest in the recent past as David Moyes prepares to overhaul his squad this summer.

Moyes has reportedly been given a huge transfer budget this summer and is looking to axe stars Ashley Young and Nani, leaving plenty of space in Manchester United's squad for Pedro.

Similarly, Arsenal have also been linked with an interest and Arsene Wenger may have to sign a left-sided forward as Lukas Podolski has recently revealed that he is not happy at the Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool are the third and final Premier League club believed to be tracking Pedro's situation. Brendan Rodgers is preparing to receive a windfall of Champions League revenue and is looking to add world-class stars to the squad ahead of their return to Europe's elite competition.
