United have been dealt a heavy blow in their pursuit of Barcelona winger Pedro with club president Josep Maria Bartomeu stating that the club are yet to receive an approach for the player and that they are in no mood to sanction any further departures.

Louis van Gaal has earmarked Pedro as the man to take over from Angel Di Maria, with the Daily Mail reporting that the player is on his way to Paris Saint-Germain after being disillusioned with life at Manchester.

Pedro has a release clause of £22m as reported by the Guardian and Van Gaal was rumoured to be keen on activating that clause in order to strengthen his squad for the coming season.

However, Bartomeu's recent revelations suggest that United will have to look elsewhere for further recruitment, having already made five astute signings this summer. The Dutchman has brought in Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian, Memphis Depay and Sergio Romero into the squad which is likely to address his problems in midfield and defence.

A deal for Sergio Ramos has also fallen through, with MARCA reporting that the player is set to sign a new contract at Real Madrid.

"The team is what it is. It has been put together. We have the team that our coach wanted it's done and completed," Bartomeu said, as quoted by the Mirror.

"We don't foresee any departures from the team. I've read many things about a Pedro departure, but no one has officially addressed our club. Our squad is complete."

United got the better of Barcelona in a pre-season friendly in the International Champions Cup, beating them 3-1 in the absence of Neymar and Messi, who were still on holiday following their exertions in the Copa America. The Red Devils start their Premier League campaign against Tottenham Hotspur on 8 August as they look to put in a credible challenge for the title.
