This one is really on the move now.
Until this point there had been no concrete evidence that Manchester United wanted Pedro.
There was a lot of speculation of course. But neither Barca, Pedro or Manchester United had expressed a specific desire for the player to move to Old Trafford.
But the lad has now opened up about his future, in what looks like a huge indicator that he will make a move to Manchester.
Asked if he wanted to go or not, the winger said: “The answer is no, but it’s complicated for many things.
“It’s not for money, as has been said – which is another lack of respect. It’s a question of continuity, of minutes. I’m an ambitious player. Stay or go, I will always be of this team.
He then addressed the specific quotes of Fernandez, who may have jumped the gun with his remarks.
“Robert has made some very unfortunate declarations. I’ve crossed two words with him and he doesn’t know what I’ve been through at the club to talk like that of me.
Most interestingly, he then spoke about a possible move to England:
“I’m calm, happy and I will always continue giving everything if I continue at this club. Manchester? Yes, there are nice challenges on all sides.
Pedro is not necessarily a world-beater but he has been part of the most successful club squad in history and, despite being pushed out to the periphery by the arrival of Neymar and Luis Suarez, he is still wanted by Barcelona. This speaks volumes for his enduring talent and class.
He would add composure and great service to the Manchester United front line and, unlike Angel di Maria, he rarely gives the ball away.
This one looks to us as if it will be sorted out, one way or the other, in the next few days.
We shall of course keep you posted on any developments as they happen.
