La Liga giants confirm Arsenal and Man United target has signed new deal

Arsenal and Manchester United have been dealt a transfer blow after Barcelona confirmed that Pedro has signed a new deal, according to reports from the Express.

The 27-year-old was tipped for an exit after losing his regular role in the squad following the arrival of Luis Suarez from Liverpool.

The three-man attack consisting of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Suarez has been a huge success for manager Luis Enrique, meaning Pedro was often limited to a role on the bench.

However, despite the Gunners, United, Liverpool and Chelsea said to be considering a move for the winger, they may now need to look elsewhere for another attacking addition.

“The striker’s current contract was due to expire on 30 June 2016. His buyout clause will remain at 150 million euros.”

He was only given 15 league starts for Barca this term, featuring as a substitute a further 20 times, scoring six goals and providing another six assists.
