Pedro Set For United Despite City Offer

Following reports that Manchester City have made a bid for Barcelona star, Pedro, William Hill make the Blues 6/4 to sign the player although their neighbours, Manchester United, remain favourites to sign him. The Red Devils have long courted the Spanish winger and are 4/6 to be the club that holds his signature come the closing of the summer transfer window, while he is 8/1 to remain in Barcelona.

“Manchester City may have met Pedro’s release clause but Manchester United’s long coveting of the player indicates that he would get the first team football that he craves at Old Trafford,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Pedro’s club after the summer transfer window: 4/6 Manchester United; 6/4 Manchester City; 8/1 Barcelona; 16/1 Chelsea; 33/1 Bayern Munich
