Louis van Gaal has told Manchester United fans that they must “wait and see” whether the club are able to push through a deal to sign Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a big-money move to bring the Spain forward to the club in recent days as Van Gaal looks to add more firepower to his squad at Old Trafford.

I don’t mention anything until he has signed

The Premier League outfit are thought to be keen on luring the 28-year-old to Old Trafford before the close of the transfer window and are reported to be ready to pay the player’s £22m release clause.

United boss Van Gaal was quizzed about the Red Devils’ pursuit of the forward at his weekly news briefing on Thursday – and the Dutchman appeared to suggest that the ball was now in the player’s court.

Van Gaal told a news conference at Carrington on Thursday: “You have to ask Pedro, not me. My answer is it’s a process, it’s a club, it’s a player, and we are there also.

“I don’t mention anything until he has signed. When he has signed I come to you and say ‘hey, Pedro is here’. That is still not the case. We shall wait and see.”
