Barcelona to delay Pedro sale to Manchester United


Don’t worry Manchester United fans as the deal is set to go through, it is just that Barcelona would like to keep hold of Pedro just a bit longer so as they can use the 27-year-old winger when they play Sevilla in the UEFA Cup in Tblisi on August 11.

Manchester United meanwhile with just eight days to go before the Premiership kicks off want to complete the deal as soon as possible.

The reason for Barca wanting the delay is due to the fact both Lionel Messi and Neymar were given extra time off following the Copa America, and trainer Luis Enrique is reluctant to risk either of them before they are fully fit.
