Neymar’s Mumps To Delay Manchester United’s Move For Pedro

Reports are out claiming that Manchester United’s reported pursuit of Pedro is likely to be delayed.


The Barcelona forward was set to join the Red Devils soon, with some suggestions saying he could make his way to Old Trafford this week after Tuesday’s European Super Cup final against Sevilla in Georgia.

However, Barca have revealed that Neymar has contracted mumps and will be sidelined for at least two weeks meaning that Pedro’s mooted move to Manchester may be on the back burner.

It was believed that United were set to pay £22million for the 28-year-old Spanish forward but with Neymar now out of the clash with Sevilla, as well as Barca’s two-legged Spanish Super Cup final with Athletic Bilbao, the Catalan giants are unlikely to allow Pedro to leave Camp Nou before August 17.

The Red Devils were hoping to get the deal done much earlier and this news could face Louis van Gaal to reassess his options.
