Pedro could play his final game for Barcelona on August 5 in the club's 'Gamper' game with Italian outfit AS Roma.

This has been reported by Spanish publication Sport, who claim that the 28-year-old is closing in on a move to Manchester United, but looks set for one final match with the Catalans before departing the club. 

In fact, the report goes on to claim that Manchester United officials are set to travel to Barcelona to hold talks with the club over the player's services.

It's been well documented, of course, that the player has a buyout clause of £22 million, but it's uncertain as to whether the Old Trafford hierarchy are prepared to pay such a sum to land the Spaniard. 

Pedro, of course, looks destined to replace Argentine international Angel di Maria, who appears to be on the move to French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain. 

Ideal replacement 

There's a reason why Pedro is the ideal Angel di Maria replacement, and it's because he's not really a replacement. 

While Di Maria, despite his wonderful pace and vision, isn't really an out-and-out winger, Pedro will roam up and down the flank all day long. 

And the Barcelona man will most definitely suit the Louis van Gaal system perfectly. As well as having a touch of class and brilliance about him, the 28-year-old is a team player and will work extremely hard, while heavily contributing when on the attack.
