Manchester United fans, look away now.

Here is the incoming signing from Barcelona, Pedro, with an embarrassing air shot last night in their Super Cup second-leg tie against Athletic Bilbao, which ended 1-1 (video below).

Having won the first leg 4-0, Bilbao secured the Super Cup 5-1 on aggregate.

In the 28th minute, with the score 0-0 at the Nou Camp, Pedro attempted to have a shot as the ball rolled to him from a corner, but completely missed the ball, almost Angel Di Maria-esque.

The latest reports claim that United chief executive Ed Woodward has flown to Spain to complete the move. Barca are holding out for £22m for the winger, which is his release clause.



The Daily Mail report that Woodward flew to Barcelona before last night's match to undergo more negotiations with the Spanish club.

Last week, Barca coach Luis Enique said Pedro wanted to leave the club as he has not been getting enough playing time.

The Spain international started 15 out of 35 La Liga appearances last season, and Enrique has admitted that the winger has grown frustrated, and is seeking a move.

"We've heard his opinions, it's a difficult decision that he has to make but we'll wait and see what he decides," Enrique said at a press conference.


"He wants to leave because he's not getting minutes but we want to give him minutes so it's a difficult situation. I certainly want him to stay.

"I'm looking forward to the end of the transfer market so I'll know exactly what I do have."

Pedro, 28, has scored 99 goals in 320 games for Barcelona, and has won five La Liga titles with the club.
