Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernandez was quoted as saying before the match that Pedro had told him he wanted to move on from the Nou Camp club. The Spain winger has been heavily linked with a move to United as they look to replace Angel di Maria, who joined Paris St Germain for £44.3million last week.
However, speaking afterwards, Pedro denied saying he wanted out and, while insisting he is happy at Barca, admits he does not know what the future holds for him.
Asked if he wanted to go or not, the long-serving forward was quoted as saying by AS: "The answer is no. But it's complicated for many things. It's not for money, as has been said — which is another lack of respect.
It's a question of continuity, of minutes. I'm an ambitious player. Stay or go, I will always be of this team. I don't know if it will be my last game for Barcelona.
I only want to enjoy this title." Regarding Fernandez's claims, Pedro said: "There are many pros and cons about my situation. The comments of Robert Fernandez are unfair."
