Report: Woodward Fails In Spain But May Still Get Pedro

So, Ed Woodward went to Spain but didn’t get back on the plane with a player, to add to United’s transfer pain.

</bad rhymes>

So say Marca. But fear not; the clubs are quibbling over 5m euros in add ons. Barca say that negotiations will continue and Pedro is still expected to move.

He’s been close for a while. What’s a few more days right?

From Marca:

Manchester United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward flew out to Barcelona to finalise a deal for Pedro with Barça’s director of professional sports, Albert Soler and their director of football administration, Raúl Sanllehí.
However, there was no deal and Woodward returned to England empty-handed. The Premier League side had offered 25m euros plus 5m euros in add-ons, but the Catalans are holding out for his buyout clause: 30m euros.
Despite not reaching an agreement today, the three parties will continue negotiations over the next few days. Everything points to a deal being on the cards and Pedro finally packing his bags and heading to Old Trafford.
The striker wants a more prominent role at Barça. Luis Enrique wants him to stay at the Camp Nou, but competition for places is tough at the club.
