Barcelona winger and forward, Pedro Rodriguez has constantly been in the news because of the transfer business surrounding him at the moment with two of the biggest clubs in England pining after him at the moment and FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has publicly admitted that he would not have any choice but to allow the player move away from Barcelona if his exit clause is met by the two clubs at loggerheads over the player’s signature at the moment.
The player who has been said to be unsettled at the Camp Nou might have a decision to make if his release clause is met by both Chelsea and Manchester United which are the two clubs after him at the moment. Although the player just signed a new contract with the Catalan giants in the summer but the arrival of Atletico Madrid’s Arda Turan has cast a huge doubt over the player’s future at the club and he might be leaving soon.
Turan arrives to add more pressure and threat to Pedro’s position as he joins the trio of trio of Neymar, Messi, Suarez who are already ahead of Pedro in the pecking order at the Camp Nou and the player might be forced to sit it out for the most part of the season.
FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique had earlier informed all interested clubs that the player will not be leaving the Camp Nou but has recently confirmed that the player could leave should his release clause be met by any club interested in the player. He said, “Pedro? If he wants to go, a club will have to meet his release clause,” “I have talked with Pedro to discuss his situation. I have told him how I think about it and he told me how he feels about it.
“I obviously won’t reveal the exact content of the conversation we had.”
Manchester United are reportedly more likely to sign the player but the player has allegedly held talks with Jose Mourinho secretly and Manchester United are still on the transfer bid acceptance stage of the transfer.
United however desperately need to sign this player as they currently have no other option in front and in the wings except Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young and Jamie Wilson.
Pedro will be a perfect addition to the United squad as he is a winger who can play in front of goal easily and United seem to be lacking players like that at the moment and if they allow Chelsea to sign the player, it might ruin their season totally.
