Manchester United are in pursuit of the Barcelona attacker Pedro Rodriguez. The words of Barcelona head coach might have inspired Ed Woodward to complete the signing of the Spanish forward. Enrique has said that if any club wishes to sign Pedro, they will have to meet his release clause of £22 million.

"Pedro? If he wants to go, a club will have to meet his release clause," Enrique told the reporters at San Francisco on Wednesday. "I have talked with Pedro to discuss his situation.

"I have told him how I think about it and he told me how he feels about it, but I obviously won't reveal the exact content of the conversation we had."

United manager Louis van Gaal has identified Pedro as one of his prime targets this summer. Van Gaal is looking to bolster his attacking options. If Pedro successfully joins the Red Devils at the Old Trafford then he could operate well alongside Memphis Depay and Wayne Rooney. 

Meanwhile, Sergio Busquets has hinted that Pedro might be on his way out from Camp Nou and join United. 

"Yes I have spoken to him but I won't tell you what he said. It was a private conversation, but I would want him to stay, I would love him to stay. He is a friend of mine and it will be his final decision, but he wants to play more and get more minutes. That's what he wants. But we are in a team of great players and it's hard for him. Finally it will be his decision but I hope he stays," Busquets told the reporters ahead of Barcelona's International Champions Cup clash against Manchester United.
