ESPN and the stunningly handsome, charming and fragrant Miguel Delaney are running with a story that Pedro could join Manchester United from Barcelona next week.

With the two sides set to meet in a friendly this weekend, United's people will meet Pedro's people and Barcelona's people, in a meeting of people and people and people. Barcelona are looking fee of £22 million, which is not anticipated to be a problem for United.

There have been other rumours of Pedro deciding to leave for more games elsewhere, as he has fallen behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez for the attacking positions at Barcelona. Sergio Busquets admitted he could leave, saying:

I would want him to stay, I would love him to stay. He is a friend of mine and it will be his final decision. He wants to play more and get more minutes. That's what he wants. But we are in a team of great players and it's hard for him. Finally it will be his decision but I hope he stays."
