SHOCKING Barca STOPS Pedro Move To Manchester United After Fee Is Agreed

Manchester United and their fans will presently be frustrated Neymar as reports have claimed he is the one holding back the purported move of Pedro Rodriguez to Old Trafford.

The Brazilian ace has mumps and will miss tomorrow’s UEFA Super Cup match against Sevilla in Tbilisi, as well as both home and away fixtures of the Spanish Super Cup. Doubts have also arose if Neymar would be fit to play in Barcelona’s opening La Liga fixture against Athletic Bilbao. This recent development at the club has prompted Luis Enrique to assign a new role to Pedro – expected to have completed his transfer to Old Trafford – and the Spaniard is now expected to replace Neymar in a deadly three-pronged attack featuring Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Goal says the Asturian coach lined up Pedro alongside Messi and Suarez in attack in Monday’s training session, as a result of Neymar’s absence.

Barca announced via an official communique yesterday: “The player, Neymar Jr. has been diagnosed with parotiditis, despite having previously vaccinated. He is expected to be out of action for a period of 15 days.”

As per AS, Neymar did not train on Saturday as Barcelona held a ‘behind closed door’ session ahead of the Super Cup and the former Santos ace was not mentioned in the summary the club usually issue regarding injured players. And when Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo quizzed them on the reason for not announcing Neymar’s absence, they seem to ignore them – which they (Mundo) tagged ”mysterious”.

Barcelona are now reluctant to let Pedro leave and as AS suggests, the spotlight is now on the player from the Canary Island who had claimed he would sort out his future after the UEFA Super Cup. Now, Neymar’s mumps is playing a hindering role in the Spanish wing wizard’s move to Old Trafford.
