Manchester United have finally agreed a fee with Barcelona for the transfer of versatile forward Pedro.

This is according to Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport, who understand that Barcelona will receive around €35 million for the 28-year-old.

Pedro is expected to fly to England to complete his move to Manchester United as early as Wednesday, following his last game for the Catalan giants against Sevilla in the UEFA European Super Cup on Tuesday night, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

The World Cup winner would subsequently be available to play for Manchester United in their second Premier League match of the season against Aston Villa on Friday night and, more importantly, the Red Devils’ Champions League play-off first leg against Club Brugge four days later.

Pedro will replace Angel di Maria, who joined Paris Saint-Germain last week, and could be handed the number nine shirt vacated by Radamel Falcao at the end of last season.

Pedro is making the best decision for his career

Pedro has made the tough decision to leave Barcelona, despite signing a contract extension earlier this summer, after 11 years at the Camp Nou.

While his preference was to stay with the reigning European champions, Pedro is resigned to the fact it’s in the best interests of his career to join a club where he will become a first-team regular again.

The extraordinary exploits of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar means Pedro faces another season of frustration, watching on from the subs’ bench, if he stays at Camp Nou.

But, in order to boost his chances of making the Spain squad for next summer’s European Championships in France, the live-wire forward has agreed to join Manchester United.
