Fans’ view: Who would you sign for Manchester United now that Pedro is going to Chelsea?

by Tanveer Arayan

The revelation that Barcelona forward Pedro will join Chelsea has shocked Manchester United supporters.

It had looked for all the world that the Spaniard would sign for Man United but the club reportedly dropped their interest on Wednesday.

Instead, Pedro will make the move to Stamford Bridge for a reported fee of around £21m.

Following weeks of reports suggesting Pedro would go to United instead, the news came as a shock to fans:

Getting a quality alternative to Pedro this late in the transfer window will take some doing.

Numerous reports on Tuesday night suggested United have made a fresh €85m bid for Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller but it is highly unlikely that the German will leave.

Unless United have a sensational deal lined up, it looks like they will have to make do with their current options. Louis van Gaal will at least be encouraged by Memphis Depay’s sensational performance against Club Brugge in the Champions League.
