Barcelona preparing for life without Man Utd target Pedro

Manchester United are set to sign Pedro from Barcelona according to reports.

Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Barcelona are planning for life without the winger by plotting a swoop for Celta Vigo ace Nolito as his direct replacement.

It is understood that United are set to trigger the £22million release clause of 28-year-old Spain international Pedro as Angel Di Maria's protracted move to Paris Saint-Germain draws nearer.

With United's reported pursuit of Pedro, Barca have been making a contingency in the form of a £7.1m move for former Benfica star Nolito in a bid to bring him back to the Camp Nou where he spent time between 2008 and 2011.
