first_imgManchester United and Barcelona have an ‘understanding’ over the Red Devils’ interest in Spanish winger Pedro, who was left furious by being benched again by the La Liga giants on Tuesday, talKSPORT have been told.Pedro’s first-team chances have been limited at the Nou Camp following the arrivals of Luis Suarez and Neymar, and United have offered him a starring role at Old Trafford following Angel di Maria’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain.Despite Neymar currently sitting on the sidelines with injury, the Spain international had his request for a starting role snubbed for the UEFA Super Cup final against Sevilla, though he later came off the bench to net the winner in 5-4 extra-time victory.And, according to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter, Tuesday night’s game could have been his final in a Barcelona shirt.“There is an understanding between Manchester United, Pedro and Barcelona,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“But honestly we’re going to have to wait and see over the coming 48 hours because Pedro finished a post-match interview last night by saying he’d like to thank Barcelona fans for everything, which tells you he IS leaving.“He is leaving for the city of Manchester, and United are in the box seat.”Pedro faced the press following the match to deny suggestions he had asked a club official about leaving the Nou Camp, though he admitted his situation was complicated.And the forward was said to be ‘spitting feathers’ with new technical secretary Robert Fernandez, who leaked the news.“What he was furious about was not simply that he was relegated to the bench, which he didn’t like and argued against,” Graham added.“But because the football director of Barcelona, on the pitch to a Catalan TV station, said that Pedro has asked him if he can go.“At the end of the Super Cup, Pedro was absolutely spitting feathers. The reason he kicked the corner flag and kicked camera equipment as he ran away after scoring the winner was that he was literally enraged that this guy, who barely knows him, announced publicly that he wants to go.”last_img read more
