Manchester City to steal Pedro from United


Sky Sports is reporting news from their sources that claim Manchester City is about to enter the race to sign Barcelona winger Pedro, but are yet to make a bid.

Contradicting, yet adding to the story is Sky Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, who claims City, has already submitted a bid for the 28-year-old knowing that the Catalan club is reluctant to budge on their £22 million valuation.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “At the moment, what we understand is that Manchester United are willing to go to €28m (£20m) plus another €2m (£1.4m) in variables, so they’re very close to it.

“But City is willing to pay – and this is a recent offer – €30m (£21.4m) plus another €2m (£1.4m), so above the buyout clause.”
