Barcelona star Pedro Rodriguez has agreed personal terms with Manchester United, according to Sky Sports and Guillem Balague.

The 28-year-old Spanish international will turn down rivals Manchester City to join Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United side.

Pedro is still waiting for the clubs to agree on a transfer fee, and it is understood Barcelona will not budge from the £21.2m buy-out clause that is written into the player’s contract.

“Ed Woodward, the Manchester United chief executive, has been in Barcelona today, speaking to the club and the word is that a deal will be done this week one way or another,” Sky Sports‘ Spanish football expert Balague told Revista de La Liga.

“I understand a deal between the player and United is already in place and all that is left is for United to put the €30m on the table. They are just negotiating how they are going to pay it, with installments or an amount up-front.”

“They are very close. I’m not sure whether Barcelona will try one last time with Pedro and say ‘don’t go’, but it seems his mind is already made up.”

Pedro has won every possible trophy for his club and country. He is a World Cup winner and UEFA European Championship winner with Spain. He has 5 La Liga titles, 3 UEFA Champions League titles and many more.

Most recently, he won UEFA Super Cup for Barcelona by scoring the winning goal to clinch the Catalan side a 5-4 win in a nail-biting match.

But Pedro is not promised to have regular game time at Camp Nou in the presence of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool all were interested in the Spaniard’s signature, but the Red Devils seem to beat their rivals for the world- class forward.
