Louis Van Gaal wants Pedro Rodríguez; that much is clear as a day. But does the Spaniard want to move to England. The vibes coming from Camp Nou are confusing to say at the least. Pedro is looking for more time on the pitch but also he does not want to leave Barcelona.
The 28-year-old has made it clear that he is looking for future options. However, it is also clear that his love affair with Barca is a major hurdle. Moreover, United’s manager is also a reason why he is not willing to move to Old Trafford.
Van Gaal’s history with Spanish players has been murky. First he had problems former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes and did not take him with the squad to US tour in the off season. Currently, the Dutchman has been having a hard time with David De Gea.
“We all know the situation that Pedro is experiencing,” Barcelona manager Louis Enrique said. “We want him to stay, but it’s a difficult decision. Nothing has changed yet, but it will change. Pedro is in a difficult situation. He’s a player who wants to stay but also wants more minutes. All the fans understand the Pedro situation.”
