Spanish daily newspaper Marca is claiming that Barcelona forward Pedro could be on his way to Manchester United in a deal that is worth between €25m – €30m.
With no online article about the story up yet, the enigmatic box in the top right of today’s front page seems to carry the headline: “Pedro, Rumbo al United” – Pedro, on his way to United.
It had been reported that United made a bid for the Spanish international by matching his release clause (via The Guardian) amid interest from fellow Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea.
The paper now claims that United’s offer has been accepted and the 27-year-old will now be on his way to Old Trafford for somewhere between €25m-€30m.
Pedro made his breakthrough into the Barca team in 2008, and despite playing a more than minor part in their success over the years, he has had to be content with a more peripheral role in recent seasons, prompting him to consider his future at the Nou Camp.
