Man United transfers: Pedro has agreed terms with Red Devils, claims expert
Guillem Balague says Pedro Rodriguez is close to completing a move to Manchester United
Pedro Rodriguez has agreed teams with Manchester United ahead of a €30m move to Old Trafford, Guillem Balague has revealed.
United chief executive Ed Woodward was reported to have flown to Barcelona on Monday afternoon in a bid to finalise a much-anticipated move for the World Cup winner.
I understand a deal between the player and United is already in place and all that is left is for United to put the €30m on the table
Pedro has grown increasingly frustrated at the five-time European champions after the Spain winger struggled to secure a regular starting spot under Luis Enrique last season.
And La Liga expert Balague expects Pedro, who has won three Champions League titles, to complete a big-money move to the Red Devils before the end of the week.
“Ed Woodward, the Manchester United chief executive, has been in Barcelona today, speaking to the club and the word is that a deal will be done this week one way or another,” Balague told Sky Sports.
“I understand a deal between the player and United is already in place and all that is left is for United to put the €30m on the table. They are just negotiating how they are going to pay it, with installments or an amount up-front.
“They are very close. I’m not sure whether Barcelona will try one last time with Pedro and say ‘don’t go’, but it seems his mind is already made up.”
The Red Devils have missed out on Real Madrid centre-half Sergio Ramos this summer.
Another United target, Nicolas Otamendi, appears to be on the brink of a £30m switch to their bitter rivals Manchester City.
Louis van Gaal has signed five players in the summer transfer window, including Bastian Schweinsteiger.
