Man United & Man City to battle for Barcelona attacker

Manchester United and Manchester City are set for a summer transfer tussle for Barcelona’s Pedro, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Spain international has long been considered as one of the Catalans’ top talents, but he has struggled for first-team action this term.

Barca coach Tata Martino has been keen to integrate Neymar into his team alongside Lionel Messi, which has left Pedro battling with Alexis Sanchez for the final role in the attacking three.

The Chilean has often come out on top in this duel, which has irked the 26-year-old World Cup winner.

According to FIFA agent Francois Gallardo, Pedro is ready to leave the Nou Camp after growing frustrated:

“Pedro is very angry this season. The player is in a difficult situation and may be sold,”

This has alerted United and City, who are keen to offer him an escape route.

It is rumoured that a fee of £25m may be enough to snap up the versatile attacker, yet much relies on the outcome of Barca’s appeal against a transfer ban imposed by FIFA.

Bayern Munich are also interested, with Pep Guardiola – who coached Pedro while in charge of the La Liga champions – known to be an admirer of the player.
