Barcelona’s game against Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup final was seen as Pedro Rodriguez’s potentially last ever match for the club, so it was fitting he scored the winner in extra time having come off the bench.
However, it proved not to be the case because Pedro started in Barcelona’s Spanish Super Cup tie against Athletic Bilbao and that one didn’t quite go to plan.
By the time Pedro was substituted in the second half after 70 minutes, Barcelona were 4-0 down and on the end of an absolute mauling at the hands of Athletic Bilbao.
Could that have been Pedro’s last ever game? Again, potentially, and United fans are certainly hoping that is the case.
Pedro's better off outta there tbh.

Barcelona are playing so bad that Pedro will call a jet urgently to board to Manchester after full-time.

Barcelona losing 4-0 to Athletic Bilbao. Pedro coming off…going straight home, packing his bags and getting on the flight to Manchester.

Come on Pedro, come to Manchester lad, we're winning the league with 6 shots on target throughout the whole season.

When Pedro gets home and watches our monotonous win vs Villa, he'll hurry up the deal

2 wins out of 2 and no goals conceded is a great start but we really need that extra attacking threat of Pedro.

The sooner Pedro arrives, the better. Get Mata to #10

Pedro needs to hurry up and swap Barcelona for Manchester to shack up alongside Juan Mata and Ander Herrera. The quicker he does that, the quicker United can start using him on the right flank and that will massively improve Louis van Gaal‘s attacking options.
