Mourinho said, “I am looking for a defender to finish this balance in our squad and after that we are ready to answer anything that can happen to our players”, he told Sky Sports News
Spanish Newspaper claimed that Pedro had talks with Mourinho, but Pedro himself has now denied that no meeting took place between them, but he admitted that one aspect of the rumour is true, saying “there are offers on the table”.

Pedro has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, with reports also claiming that the Red Devils are set to make a formal bid for the player later this week.
