United target Pedro : I don’t want to leave the club but…

The Catalan club forward has been linked to Old Trafford move, as United boss Louis Van Gaal looks to replace Angel di Maria.

The 28-year-old Spanish winger scored the winning goal in extra time for Barcelona in their thrilling Super Cup win against Sevilla. Pedro however seemed to be in a sullen mood after the match as he stood alone, clearly reluctant to join in the celebrations with the team.

“The sports director says I said I want out? He shouldn’t say that, I barely talked with him,” Pedro talked to reporters after the game.

“I talked with the president and others. This is a difficult situation for me, of course I wanted to start. I don’t know what will happen, but I will always be a Barça fan.

“Do I want to leave? The answer is ‘no’, but my situation is difficult. It’s not about money, but about more playing time.”

“I was angry when I knew I had to stay on the bench, having had a chance with Neymar’s illness.

“I don’t want to leave Barcelona but it is a complicated situation. It is not a money question, but a continuity question. I want to play. Luis Enrique preferred other players and I have been waiting a lot of time.”

Barcelona have set €30 million price tag for the Spanish winger which the Premier League side are willing to meet. Pedro Rodriguez will be Louis Van Gaal ‘s sixth signing of the summer, after Manchester United successfully put pen to paper with Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin, Sergio Romero, Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian.
