Our resident Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern haven’t known a summer like this one with five new faces having already arrived at Old Trafford with it looking like the Red Devils are still far from finished.
The next big name signing expected to be winging his way into the club is Barcelona’s Pedro who BBC Football recently reported is definitely seeking alternatives after growing into a “difficult” situation with his current club.
This difficult situation is of course the fact that Pedro has spent his entire career thus far at the Camp Nou but spends his time residing on the bench more often than not now after the arrival of Luis Suarez from Liverpool last summer.
With Neymar and Lionel Messi representing the other two thirds of Luis Enrique’s devastating attacking trio, it appears Pedro is intent on moving away from the Catalan giants for the sake of his career and regular playing time.
And to be honest, who can blame him at 28-years-old?
With United having recouped £44 million from the sale of Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, we fully expect a large chunk of this money to be reinvested into Pedro’s signature but who could be following him to Old Trafford before September 1st?
We take a look at five leading candidates.
