Barcelona winger Pedro has reportedly given Man United a 72-hour deadline to complete his transfer or forget about signing him this month.
The Spaniard has been linked with the Premier League giants all summer, and it was reported this week that he had agreed personal terms, but the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement on the transfer fee.
Barca are reportedly holding out for €30m, but it is unclear as to whether United want that reduced or they are negotiating in order to have it paid in instalments.
Regardless, according to Mundo Deportivo, the 28-year-old has now informed Louis Van Gaal that he wants the deal to be completed in the next two or three days otherwise he will walk away and stay with the Catalan giants.
United chief Ed Woodward is in Spain to discuss terms of the deal with Barcelona, and they are expected to continue talks until a compromise is reached.
Mundo Deportivo claim that Van Gaal has pressed United to pay the €30m fee, particularly given that they have already generated funds from the sales of Angel Di Maria and Robin Van Persie. Furthermore, the possible sale of David De Gea to Real Madrid will boost the club’s coffers with additional funds to reinvest in the squad.
