Transfer gossip: Barcelona’s Pedro bound for England

Tom Victor

City and Liverpool vote for Pedro

Barcelona forward Pedro could be set for a Premier League move, despite signing a new contract with the Champions League winners.

Mundo Deportivo report that the 27-year-old could be open to a move after making more than 200 La Liga appearances for the club with which he has spent his entire career.

An offer in the region of £18m could be enough to snare the Spanish international, who has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona since the arrival of Luis Suarez.

United to avoid Morgan failure with £25m bid

Morgan Schneiderlin looks set for Old Trafford, with Manchester United believed to have met Southampton’s £25m asking price.

The Daily Star claim Southampton have accepted an offer from Louis van Gaal’s club, consisting of a £20m up-front fee and a furthe £5m in add-ons.

United are believed to have stepped up their approach for the French midfielder with a cut-price move for Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger looking less likely.


Big Phil to pay big money for Paulinho

Tottenham are ready to part ways with midfield misfit Paulinho, with Guangzhou Evergrande prepared to pay £17m for the Brazil international.

According to the London Evening Standard, the Chinese club – managed by former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari – are ready to add the 26-year-old to their growing Brazilian contingent.

Spurs could spend some of the windfall on Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld, with the Daily Telegraph reporting that they are keen on the Belgian.
