Man Utd move for long-term Real Madrid target Pedro

Manchester United have jumped into the battle for Fluminense striker Pedro.

Globo Esporte says United officials have contacted the club about the young Brazilian who was a target for Real Madrid last year.

They say Pedro was close to joining the Spanish giants before sustaining a cruciate knee ligament injury that required him to undergo surgery.

He has scored twice in six matches since regaining fitness.

It has been claimed should Pedro make a full recovery, Real would return with an offer in the region of £20m for him.
