Man United transfers: Pep Guardiola talks up Pedro Rodriguez
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola says Pedro Rodriguez could play for any side in the world
Pep Guardiola says Pedro Rodriguez can play in any team in the world amid reports linking the Barcelona forward with a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils have been linked with a £22m move for the 28-year-old World Cup winner in recent months, although a move has failed to materialise so far.
He can play in any team in the world, but I don’t know the situation right now
Pedro has fallen down the pecking order under Barcelona manager Luis Enrique following the £75m signing of Luis Suarez from Liverpool last summer.
And Bayern Munich manager Guardiola, who regularly picked Pedro during his two Champions League wins at Camp Nou, talked up the Spain international.
“[Pedro] is one of the best players you can imagine,” Guardiola is quoted as saying by Daily Telegraph.
“He’s won the European Cup, the Champions League and played millions of games for Barcelona. He can play in any team in the world, but I don’t know the situation right now. He’s a great player.”
Pedro has won five La Liga crowns and three Champions League titles since breaking into the Barcelona side 11 years ago.
United manager Louis van Gaal has already signed five players in the summer transfer window after he snapped up Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero.
