Manchester United's pursuit of Barcelona winger Pedro has moved a step closer, with the president of his former club, CD San Isidro saying that the 27-year-old's mother has confirmed to him that her son will be "leaving for England".

Pedro has been heavily linked with a £21m move to United this summer, with Angel Di Maria set to leave the Old Trafford club to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spain international left San Isidro to join Barca's youth team back in in 2004. The fourth tier Spanish club will also receive over £300,000 for Pedro's transfer.

"The other day, Pedro's mother told us he was leaving for England," Jamie Lorenzo, San Isidro's president, told El Larguero.

"I think it would be a good challenge for him and he will have more playing time.


"We will send him a gift! If the agreement is €30 million (£21m) at least €450,000 (£316,350) belongs to us, even though these contracts have some specific clauses."
