Arsenal legend: Pedro perfect for Manchester United.


Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is convinced Barcelona star Pedro will be a 'perfect' addition to Louis van Gaal's side.

Henry, who won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners, believes the Spain international will fit into the United manager's philosophy and backs Pedro to be a success at Old Trafford - should the Red Devils end up securing his services.

"Van Gaal went on to buy players this summer that can suit the way he wants to play - that’s why he wants Pedro," the Highbury legend Henry told Marca.

"Pedro knows those tactics, he can do what Van Gaal wants. I’ve seen him at Barcelona, he was putting pressure on and staying out wide - he has it.

"It’s the same with [Bastian] Schweinsteiger - Van Gaal knows that if he asks Schweinsteiger to do something, he’ll do it."

Manchester United are closing in on a £22million deal to sign Pedro from La Liga champions as they look to replace Angel Di Maria who moved to Paris Saint Germain last week in a £44million deal.
