Manchester United could complete Pedro deal after UEFA Super Cup meet

Manchester United and Barcelona will sit down one last time next week to try and arrange a deal for the transfer of Pedro, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Catalan newspaper, as relayed by the Daily Mail, claims that the Red Devils and their Spanish counterparts have yet to determine a financial structure for any potential deal involving Pedro, although the player himself has agreed terms regarding said switch.

This update comes in spite of the fact that Barca president Josep Bartomeu earlier today told how he had received no offers for the forward, instead insisting that at the moment it looked possible he would stay at the Nou Camp.

Pedro gossip

Of course Bartomeu may be bluffing in a bid to keep the transfer under wraps until it is definitely agreed upon, with Barca’s UEFA Super Cup meeting with Sevilla next week looming on the horizon.

Indeed it’s that fixture that Mundo cite as being the reason behind holding the final summit next week, with it logical that the powers that be with the Blaugrana want to get that match out of the way before they get rid of a known fan favourite.

Pedro arrival imminent?

Therefore it looks feasible that United could have Pedro within the next seven days, particularly as the club have now confirmed the sale of Angel Di Mara to Paris Saint-Germain.

The decision to allow the Argentina international to join the Ligue 1 champions could be indicative of Louis van Gaal’s stance that he wants a new wide-man, and Pedro certainly fits the bill in that respect.

A tough deal

Since he’s been with Barca through thick and thin - admittedly most of it thick - after emerging from the fabled La Masia academy, negotiations regarding his exit are understandably tricky.

United though now have fresh money to play with following Di Maria’s sale, and if rumours are to be believed there’s only one man Van Gaal’s keen on spending it on.

United fans, do you think Pedro is going to arrive as Di Maria's replacement? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
