Pedro Tells Family He Wants United Move

The Metro claim that Barcelona forward Pedro has told his family that he’s moving to Manchester United in this summer’s transfer window. The Spaniard’s move to Manchester United will supposedly depend on whether or not Angel di Maria leaves Old Trafford. These latest reports show a move is close, and the No 7 could be flying over to Manchester within the week.

The 28-year-old has become Louis van Gaal’s number one target to replace Angel Di Maria, with the Argentine close to sealing his £45m move to PSG in the coming days. The Spanish forward has proven his worth during his time at Barcelona, but has struggled to stay in the first XI due to the competition with Neymar, Suarez and Messi who have formed the most deadly strike-force in the world.

The latest news on Pedro is that he has told his family he wants to move to England and that Manchester is his preferred destination.

“The other day the mother of Pedro told us that he is leaving for England.” said Jamie Lorenzo, president of Spanish side Raqui San Isidro.

“I think it would be a good challenge for him and he would have more minutes.”

So it seems the move for Pedro is closer than ever. Should he move to United, the Red Devils would almost certainly have an improved front line, even if it did mean losing Angel di Maria. But let’s face it, the Argentine won’t really be missed, United managed just fine without the 27-year-old last season – and if the player doesn’t want to wear the famous red shirt, then so be it!
