As the rumors of a potential Pedro departure from Barcelona to join the Premier League and Manchester United continue to grow, one football and Blaugrana legend gave his opinion on the deal if it happens.

Thierry Henry, one the best strikers in history who was part of the Pep Team and played with Pedro during his best time at the Blaugrana club, spoke to talkSPORT about the possibility of the Spanish winger joining the Red Devils, and he is positive that the 28-year-old could make a difference in Louis Van Gaal's scheme because of his ability to adapt and do what the coach wants.

Here's a few highlights of his interview:

"Van Gaal wants players that can adapt to his manner of seeing the game, this is the reason they are trying to get him."

"I've seen him at Barcelona, pressing and going out wide. It's the same as Schweinsteiger - Van Gaal knows that he will do what he asks."

Henry brings up a great point. What has always been a trademark of Pedro's game is his willigness to obey orders from the coach. He's not the most talented, but he's a hard worker who always leaves it all on the pitch. That determination will be missed if he does leave, but it's his choice to go or not.
