Pedro asks to leave Barcelona, misses the Super Cup

Barcelona’s sporting director Robert Fernandez has confirmed that forward Pedro has asked to be allowed to leave the Nou Camp.

The 28 year old is reportedly a target for Manchester United and more recently, Man City and has a gentleman’s agreement with the Catalan club that will allow him to move on for a fee of €30m, a significant drop from the €150m buyout clause.

Manchester United had wanted to sign him before the Premier League started but that deadline passed with no transfer taking place, but with the deadline for the Champions League fast approaching any move will have to take place quickly.

Barcelona had wanted to hold onto the attacker especially with news that Brazilian star Neymar had contracted mumps, but it appears that Pedro is keen to draw a line under the matter and move on.

Fernandez reportedly told TV3  that the World Cup winner had asked to leave and therefore will take part in tonight’s European Super Cup clash with Sevilla from the bench.
