It’s fair to say that Manchester United fans are not a happy bunch right now. Having worked themselves into a frenzy over the possible signing of Pedro from Barcelona, reports on Wednesday morning broke claiming that Chelsea are on the verge of signing him from right under their noses.
It is being claimed that the 28-year-old is in London undergoing a medical with the Premier League champions where he will then sign on with Jose Mourinho’s men.
And Red Devils fans were pretty quick to taking to social media to vent their anger at missing out on a world class replacement for Angel Di Maria.
The news also comes just 24 hours after learning that they may miss out on defender Nicolas Otamendi to cross-city rivals Manchester City.
What an absolute farce it would be if Mourinho has taken Pedro away from Man Utd in the space of a couple of hours. Why are #mufc so slow?

Is Ed really that stupid? Dropped the transfer of Pedro to buy Muller? Does he not understand we will NOT sign Muller! What a joke @ManUtd

Ed Woodward needs to be sacked. Never liked him at all. Can't even negotiate a deal for a player who wants to leave. Shocking.

It's not the idea of not getting Pedro, it's the suggestion that Woodward has yet again made a complete fool of himself and the club. #mufc

Ed Woodward flying out to Barcelona to tie up the Pedro deal seems to have worked a treat

Man Utd 'transfer guru' Ed Woodward might be trending on twitter for all the wrong reasons once again shortly #Pedro

We have bottled Pedro. The easiest transfer all summer and we have fucked it up. This is sensational.

First Ramos, then Otamendi, now Pedro. What started positively for Ed Woodward & Man Utd this summer is starting to descend into farce.
