Man United agree £22m forward deal, shirt number revealed

Old Trafford side to bring in experienced attacker.

Man United have agreed terms with Barcelona forward Pedro ahead of his long awaited move to Old Trafford according to El Confidencial (via the Daily Star).

Louis van Gaal will look to use funds accrued from the sale of Angel Di Maria to PSG, said to have netted Man United around £44.5m, to snap up Pedro and the Spanish international is set to be handed the number nine shirt by the Premier League giants.

Pedro has seen his chances of a prominent role in Luis Enrique’s starting eleven compromised by the arrival of Luis Suarez last summer, the 28-year-old making just 15 La Liga starts in 2014/15, and a move to Man United could help to re-ignite the versatile forward’s career.

Man United have edged to successive 1-0 wins in their opening two Premier League fixtures and could well do with more of a cutting edge in the final third.

Pedro has scored 99 goals for Barcelona, one of which came against Man United in the 2011 Champions League final, which saw the Catalan giants triumph 3-1 at Wembley.
