Reports breaking in Spain suggest that Manchester United are set to sign Barcelona’s Pedro after Ed Woodward agreed to pay a fee of £23m.
The forward has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a few weeks and Sport are now claiming that the move is imminent.
However, two crucial elements remain unexplained – whether Barcelona will accept the offer, considering it is just under the player’s release close – and, just when Pedro may join United. The report claims that he wishes to play in the European Super Cup in Tblisi before departing from the club.
Manchester United’s executive vice-president Edward Woodward is back in England after joining the US tour. After witnessing the match between Man United and Barcelona (3-1) and seeing Pedro in action, he has given his approval for United to pay €32.5million for the forward, who is not happy at Barcelona.
Although the club doesn’t want to sell, United are going for it and are close to reaching an agreement with the player. That’s why Woodward is back in Manchester. He will speak with pedro’s agent and reach an agreement before conducting transfer negotiations.
However, Pedro is looking forward to playing in the European Super Cup in Tbilisi and his move to Manchester United may not happen until after that.
