Manchester bound? Pedro's mother says 'he is Barcelona leaving for England'
Manchester United is moving closer to signing Pedro from Barcelona, with the president of his former club, CD San Isidro saying that the 27-year-old's mother has confirmed to him that her son will be "leaving for England".
Pedro has been heavily linked with a £21m move to United this summer, with Angel Di Maria set to leave the Old Trafford club to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spain international left San Isidro to join Barca's youth team back in in 2004. The fourth tier Spanish club will also receive over £300,000 for Pedro's transfer.
"The other day, Pedro's mother told us he was leaving for England," Jamie Lorenzo, San Isidro's president, told El Larguero.

"I think it would be a good challenge for him and he will have more playing time.
"We will send him a gift! If the agreement is €30 million (£21m) at least €450,000 (£316,350) belongs to us, even though these contracts have some specific clauses."
