Following his extra time winner for Barcelona against Sevilla in the European Super Cup, it appears that Pedro is on his way out of the club, with Manchester United his most likely destination.

The forward told Catalan television:"It's a difficult situation for me. I don't want to go but it's a question of playing time, of continuity in the team, it's been this way for a few years now."

With United on the hunt for forward reinforcements and Pedro wanting a new club, the two would appear to be a perfect match.
