The 27-year-old was approached by the woman while in his car, and she asked him whether he was going to leave the Nou Camp for the Red Devils. The Spain international didn’t deny that he was going to depart, which was met by a flood of tears from the supporter.
The Independent has revealed that United will have to pay £22 million for the winger, but aren’t letting him leave for Old Trafford immediately. With Lionel Messi and Neymar both unlikely to be fully fit in time for the UEFA Super Cup after playing in the Copa America, the Blaugrana are keen for him to play in the match against Sevilla.
This means that United may not get their man until after August 11. If so, he would miss their first game of the campaign against Tottenham on August 8. This would be a major blow for Louis van Gaal, who could be without record signing Angel Di Maria by then. The Argentina international has been heavily linked with a move to PSG.
