Manchester United media round-up: Januzaj exit depends on Pedro deal

Old Trafford 2

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

The Daily Star has reported that Adnan Januzaj’s potential loan move to Sunderland, relies on a transfer going through at Manchester United.

The paper claims that any exit for the talented Belgian is reliant on United signing Pedro from Spanish giants Barcelona.

The paper claims that a deal for Pedro would be worth in the region of £22 million to the Old Trafford club.

The Daily Mail has quoted Barcelona’s president Josep Bartomeu as stating that United haven’t yet made an offer for Pedro.

United appear to be letting things play out at the moment, before acting with a formal request to sign the player from the Nou Camp team.

Bartomeu has also cast doubt over any move by explaining that he feels the player is still important to Barcelona boss Luis Enrique.

“Pedro's last game?' the president said after the match. 'Not as far as I know. We didn't get any offer and the coach counts on him, he's a key player,” he said.

The Guardian has reported that Manchester United could face a game against Monaco or Lazio in the play-off round to reach the Champions League group stage.

United are expected to be placed in the second pot of teams for the final qualification round ahead of the European tournament rolling out for another season.

United’s potentially difficult tie is due to the club’s fourth place finish in the Premier League.
