MundoDeportivo report that Manchester United must sign Barcelona’s Pedro tomorrow if they wish to have the player registered to play in the Champions League playoff against Brugge.
This of course has been a sticking point – the Reds would ideally have liked to already have the player, but Barcelona (or the player himself) appear keen to have him available for the European Super Cup on Tuesday. Short of arranging a few days loan back between the clubs there is no arrangement that exists that sees Pedro signing for United and registering for their squad and playing in the game for Barcelona.
From MundoDeportivo (via Google Translate):
Manchester United has to accelerate the signing of Pedro if you want to have the Canaries striker for the Champions League qualifiers. The ‘Red Devils’, which debuted yesterday in the Premier narrow win against Tottenham (1-0), have until Monday, limit day to register players for the dispute of the previous Champions. United, which in principle should not have trouble getting rid of the Belgian side will play the first leg on 18 August at Old Trafford, while the round held in Bruges on 26 August. If Peter is not registered to play the match on the 18th, and could not play the second leg in Bruges. To sign him later, does not mean that United can count on Pedro for the rest of the Champions, as long as you dispose of Bruges.
At the moment, the Catalan club still waiting for the United move tab and present in the club offices with demanding 30 million of its clause. After selling to Di Maria on Thursday to PSG, the United has 63 million euros, which could face the operation by the Barcelona striker smugly.
Nolito awaits news
Until the departure of Peter Manchester United is not desencalle, the club does not top the signing Nolito. The arrival of Cadiz striker to Camp Nou is conditional on the progress of Pedro. Therefore, until the set of Van Gaal decide not to pay the 30 million who asks the club, Celta will Nolito. In fact, you have just specifying his move, it will stay in Vigo until January, once finished the sanction of the FIFA and the club can enroll.
