Manchester United closing in on Pedro with a £22m deal to be signed next week


Manchester United are as close to signing Barcelona winger Pedro as they have ever been with reports suggesting a deal for the 27-year-old could be done and dusted by as early as next week.

United is prepared to trigger the World Cup winners £22 million release clause, and after discussions are confident that Pedro wants to move to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile Barcelona arrived at their training base in San Francisco yesterday ahead of their match against Manchester United at Levi’s Stadium on Saturday.

And while the Catalan giants trainer Luis Enrique does not want Pedro to leave the Nou Camp, he fully understands the player’s frustration of not being able to play as much as he would want.
