Louis van Gaal has pointed out that Pedro is exactly the kind of player United needs, amidst speculation of the forward leaving Barcelona.
Pedro came off the bench to score the winning goal against sevilla in the UEFA super cup, but is looking for more playing time as Messi, Suarez and Neymar look to edge him out again.
Despite Van Gaal not expatiating on the situation, he insists that Pedro is what his side needs.
“You have to ask Pedro, not me,” Van Gaal insisted when asked about the deal. “My answer is itâ€™s a process – a club, a player and we are there also. I donâ€™t mention anything to you until he has signed. Then I come to you and say â€˜Pedro is hereâ€™. But itâ€™s still not the case and we shall wait and see.”
When asked if Pedro was the kind of fast, direct striker United are looking for, Van Gaal replied: “Pedro is a player like that… so write it!”
