Manchester United fans have their say on Pedro’s move to Chelsea

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United’s pursuit of Pedro was well known and it happened very quickly over the last few weeks.

After his muted celebrations following Barcelona’s Super Cup victory, thanks to Pedro’s goal in extra time, it was clear the Spaniard wasn’t entirely happy at his current club and an exit did seem inevitable.

With a €30m release clause, Man United knew exactly what they had to pay in order to sign Pedro but there were complications with the deal as Barcelona wanted the full amount up front.

After a few days of stalled negotiations, Chelsea swooped in at the last minute and signed Pedro, much to the dismay of a few United fans.

The immediate reaction from the club itself was that Louis van Gaal decided to pull the plug on a move for Pedro. Was that the case? There are contrasting stories regarding the situation but if that was really the case then questions have to be asked as to why United went in for him in the first place.

Regardless of what has happened in the last week with Sergio Ramos signing a new deal, Pedro joining Chelsea and Nicolas Otamendi moving to Manchester City, it’s been a great transfer window for United.

That being said, there are still glaring issues in the squad which, if not addressed in the next few weeks, could come back to haunt United this season.
