Manchester United have begun talks to sign Fluminense Striker Pedro who is being valued at €25 million (£22m).
Real Madrid and Manchester United were very interested in signing the forward last year, with the Spanish Capital willing to pay the asking price for the Brazilian youngster.
However, the 21-year-old suffered an unfortunate Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury which ended his hope for the big transfer.
Pedro made his senior debut for the Brazilian side Fluminense 3 years ago and has scored 17 goals in 50 appearances for them.
The centre-forward received his first call up from his National side last year, but he had to pull out due to an untimely knee injury.
Now, according to reports in Metro, the youngster has been tracked by Manchester United with Ed Woodward and co. ready to add some young-blood into the side as the summer rebuild continues.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already discussed about the idea of signing up and coming players instead of going for the big names.
The recent recruitment of Fred and most notably Alexis Sanchez has been a major failure (especially Sanchez, Fred still has a chance to prove his worth) and that’s why Manchester United board is working carefully to avoid such disasters yet again.
Do you think Pedro could be a good option for us, especially considering the fact that he’s available for cheap?
