Manchester City have entered the race to sign talented Barcelona winger Pedro, according to mundodeportivo. 

It has been claimed that the Citizens have entered negotiations with the Catalans in recent days, as they go about landing the Spanish international in this transfer window. 

City, who have already signed wide-man Raheem Sterling this summer, could yet add to their options in the final third of the pitch as they go in search of overhauling Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table this season.

This news, then, will no doubt come as a blow to Manchester United, who had seemingly been in the driving seat to bring the player to England. 

United, of course, have been linked with Pedro for some time now, but it appears that they will now have to fight off their Manchester rivals to secure his signature.

And United need him. Ultimately, with the player's buy-out clause set at €30 million, the Red Devils would be foolish not to bring him to the club, as they go about replacing Argentine international Angel di Maria. 

Pedro, then, would suit Van Gaal's system perfectly, as he'd offer a great deal down the flank. You can hardly blame City for challenging United for the player's signature, though, and it looks set to be an interesting couple of weeks for all involved. 

One thing's for sure, whoever signs the Barcelona man before the close of the window, will land a top, top player, who has all the credentials to become a fine player in England's elite division. 

Who should Pedro join this summer? Have your say below!
