Man United have reportedly agreed a £23.1m fee with Barcelona over the transfer of star winger Pedro.
Pedro has also been linked with both Chelsea and Liverpool, but it now seems the Red Devils are close to completing the signing of the Spanish international.
Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Tancredi Palmeri announced on Twitter that United had agreed a £23.1m fee for Pedro, with minot details still to be completed before the deal is finalised.

Pedro has dropped down the pecking order at the Camp Nou following the sublime form of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez and is believed to be in search for increased first-team action elsewhere.
Barcelona boss Luis Enrique earlier in the month gave Pedro the all clear to leave the Catalan giants, saying he would “respect” the 27-year-old’s decision should he decide to exit the Camp Nou.
Enrique said: “My wish is that Pedro stays, but there are circumstances in his contract and I will respect his opinion if he wants to leave,” Enrique is quoted as saying by Daily Star.
Pedro has scored 58 goals in 204 La Liga appearances for Barcelona since making his debut for the club in 2008.
