The Evening Standard have reported that Manchester United would confirm the signing of Barcelona winger, Pedro in the next couple of days. They also revealed that despite terms not agreed yet, they are in advanced talks already and an agreement is on the horizon.
The Spaniard had to be subjected to a back up role as the trio of Neymar, Suarez and Messi ensured that he saw reduced time on the pitch and as the club announced their capture of Turkish attacking midfielder, Arda Turan from Athletico Madrid, he is likely going to see more reduced time on the pitch as competition for places will become stiffer.
Liverpool and Chelsea have both been linked to the winger but Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho has ruled out making a move for the winger as he has ruled out making a move for the winger as he has brought back Victor Moses into his plans after he spent last season on loan at Stoke City. He also went further to reveal that he is only interested in signing a center back which is obviously Everton’s John Stones as he went public to declare his interest for the player much to the disdain of Everton boss, Roberto Martinez.
Liverpool and United remain the two most likely destinations for the unhappy winger but with United boasting Champions League football, he would most likely prefer a move to Old Trafford.
With the departure of Angel di Maria imminent, the signing of Pedro will boster LvG’s squad as they compete on different fronts this campaign. Pedro’s versatility is also an added bonus, he is capable of playing across the three man attacking band if LvG opts for a 4-2-3-1 formation or even a secondary role behind the main striker in a 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 system.
