Thierry Henry: Why Pedro would be an excellent signing for Manchester United


Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says Barcelona striker Pedro would be an excellent signing for Manchester United.

The 28-year-old is this week expected to make a move to Old Trafford for £22m.

And according to Henry, the Spaniard would fit perfectly in Louis van Gaal's formation.

"Manchester United will be getting an excellent player if they can complete the signing of Pedro," Henry told The Sun.

"He was the perfect team-mate for me at Barcelona because his understanding of wing play was second to none.

"No one was better at applying pressure from out wide. It is a position that is in his DNA.

"It's been drilled into him by a lifetime at the Nou Camp and why I believe he will be such an important acquisition for United.

"Louis van Gaal's teams play in a structured way. He wants his players to stick rigidly to their positions and maximise their area of the pitch.

"Di Maria's game was based on running free from the right or the left. He didn't fit into Van Gaal's setup and that's why they have sold him.

"Pedro will be much more disciplined. He was more than important to Barcelona's success, even though he spent much of last season as backup for Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez."
