Manchester United and Barcelona have reportedly agreed a deal to bring Pedro Rodriguez to Old Trafford this summer, but will only do so after the Catalan club's Uefa Super Cup clash against Sevilla on 11 August.

According to Goal, the two clubs have reached an agreement and have settled on an initial fee of £18.1m ($28.2m) with a further £4.2m ($6.5m) to be paid as bonuses.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the Spanish forward, with Louis van Gaal even admitting that his team needs players with speed and creativity to become genuine title contenders.

According to Spanish publication AS, emissaries from the 20-time English champions have arrived in Barcelona to finalise the deal, with Pedro's former club's president admitting that he has already informed friends and family regarding his imminent move to England.

Pedro has fallen down the pecking order due to the brilliant understanding formed by Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, and despite making 33 appearances in the La Liga last season, he completed the full 90 minutes on just eight occasions.

This has prompted the forward to look for a move away from the club he has spent over a decade at, as he remains concerned regarding his place in the Spanish national team ahead of the 2016 European Championships in France.

However, despite agreeing a deal with the Red Devils for the transfer of Pedro, the Catalan giants are unwilling to sanction a move before their Uefa Super Cup clash against Sevilla due to the manager's fitness concerns over Neymar and Messi, who have just returned to full training following extended breaks owing to their participation at the 2015 Copa America tournament.

According to the Mirror, United have offered the 28-year-old forward a four-year deal with a further one-year option.
