Pedro latest

United fans wanting to see Pedro move to Old Trafford will have this morning woken to a nice surprise, as it’s said today that the Spanish winger is keen on said switch.

Recent reports have detailed how Louis van Gaal wants to strike a deal for the Barcelona star, who is struggling to get game-time at the Nou Camp due to the lethal triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Well, the latest to be found on this dreary Monday morning is that United will make a bid to sign the forward this week, and it’s even believed he will accept the transfer if Barcelona say yes.

Of course the Catalans might not want him to leave, so there’s a potential obstacle there, but at any rate it looks as though the transfer is perhaps more feasible than fans will have initially been accepting.

Di Maria future

Meanwhile, other reports are largely focused on the potential fallout from that move, with it being said that United could sell Angel Di Maria if it looks like they’ll land Pedro.

Paris Saint-Germain are confident they can snap up the Argentina international for just £40m, although it’s a safe bet Van Gaal will hold out for more than that if it’s his decision. If it’s not then there’s a chance Di Maria could be sold after an underwhelming debut campaign in England.

Shaw fitness

Lastly it would seem that Luke Shaw is vying to put his struggles from last season behind him, and has admitted he took the criticism from Van Gaal concerning his fitness on board.

The United manager publicly questioned Shaw’s fitness last term, and the youngster is apparently working to make sure he’s much sharper as he seeks to begin what could be a defining term.
