“I Hope Pedro Rodriguez Stays In Barcelona” – Luis Enrique On Manchester United Target
Barcelona coach Luis Enrique says he wants Pedro to stay at Camp Nou amid significant interest from Manchester United.
The English side are lining up a deal worth around £22 million (€30m) for the 28-year-old attacker, but former Roma and Celta Vigo boss Luis Enrique insists he doesn’t want his player to leave the European champions.
“Pedro is a high-level player and as a coach I want him to stay here, but is his decision,” he told reporters on Tuesday.
“There will only be exits if someone wants to leave and at the moment we don’t have news about this.”
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is widely reported to be heading to Catalunya in an attempt to close a deal, while manager Louis van Gaal admitted recently that Pedro’s qualities are exactly what he needs in his squad.
