Man United transfer boost… Superstar edging towards move

Manchester United have been handed a major transfer boost, with reports from Cope claiming that Pedro has decided to end his 10-year stay at Barcelona this summer.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the 27-year-old in recent weeks, amid suggestions that Louis van Gaal is plotting more additions to his ranks following the arrivals of Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin.

And their hopes of landing him have been significantly raised by claims that Pedro himself is eager to move on.

Reports reveal that the versatile attacker – whose release clause has fallen to just under £22m with his new contract – is desperate to play regular football after sliding down the pecking order at the Nou Camp following the arrival of Luis Suarez last summer.

Pedro could be an ideal replacement for Angel di Maria at Old Trafford, with the Argentine attracting serious attention from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
