Robin van Persie was sold to Fenerbahce and now Manchester United is in need of an appropriate forward who can replace the Dutch attacker. Louis van Gaal is now searching around the summer transfer window for a player who can perform alongside Wayne Rooney and recent rumors have been linking Pedro Rodriguez as well as ZlatanIbrahimovic with a move to Old Trafford.
Manchester United has already signed Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay as well as few other players but none of them are forwards and this is what Louis van Gaal is attempting to bring into his team.
Barcelona’s Pedro Rodriguez is turning into a possible summer signing as he is mostly just used as a substitute player in Camp Nou and has to settle with only a few minutes on certain matches in the pitch. Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi are the main goal-scoring outlets of Barcelona and this isn’t expected to change anytime soon.
Pedro has recently had his contract modified and the release clause in his current contract was lowered from €150 million to €30 million, this makes it much more accessible for other clubs to sign him in this summer and making a move away from Barcelona is much better in the playing career of the Spanish attacker as he can get secured playing time if he decides to join Manchester United.
ZlatanIbrahimovic of PSG is another one of the high-profile forwards that Manchester United is believed to be interested in signing. The Swedish attacker is 33 year old but even with his elevated age, he continues to prove that age is just a number as his skills still continue being top class.
Attempting to sign Ibrahimovic can be harder than snatching Pedro as Ac.Milan and a few other top European clubs are also interested in securing the services of Ibrahimovic.
