Man United transfers: Arsenal legend talks up Pedro Rodriguez move
Thierry Henry says Manchester United would be making a wise move by signing Pedro Rodriguez this summer
Thierry Henry believes that Manchester United would be carrying out a fine piece of transfer business by signing Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona this summer.
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a big-money move for the Spain international in recent days as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford following the departures of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao.
United are thought to be ready to meet Pedro’s buyout clause, which is reported to be set at around £22m.
And former Arsenal striker Henry says that Pedro would fit in perfectly to the style of play Van Gaal is attempting to bring to Old Trafford.
Henry is quoted as saying by Marca: “Van Gaal went on to buy players this summer that can suit the way he wants to play – that’s why he wants Pedro.
“Pedro knows those tactics, he can do what Van Gaal wants
“I’ve seen him at Barcelona, he was putting pressure on and staying out wide – he has it.
“It’s the same with [Bastian] Schweinsteiger – Van Gaal knows that if he asks Schweinsteiger to do something, he’ll do it.”
United kicked off their Premier League campaign with a home victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils are next in action when they take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on Friday night.
