Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez is close to agreeing a deal with Manchester United, according to Sky Sports

The fee United will pay has been speculated around the £20-23m mark.

With Di Maria unlikely to feature next season, and Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao already off United's books, LVG is looking to add some fresh energy up front. Pedro is hungry for minutes, something United can guarantee him.

Barcelona coach Felipe Luis is resigned to losing Pedro, despite not wanting to. He understands that the 27-year-old wants regular football, something that cant be offered with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez guaranteed starters.

Chelsea were initially thought to be leading the chase for Pedro ahead of the likes of long-term admirers Arsenal.
