Enrique bemoans transfer window

After yet again fielding questions about Pedro's future at the club, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique can't wait for the transfer window to slam shut.

Enrique has been questioned about the winger's future every time he's stepped in front of the media and it was no different following the second leg of the Super Cup final, which the Catalans lost 5-1 on aggregate on Monday.

Reports suggest that Pedro is close to a move to Manchester United, but Enrique is just willing the transfer window to shut so he knows who he can count on this season.

"It's a difficult situation, it's hard to be focused," he said after the 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao in the second leg of the Supercopa de Espana.

"I am just hoping that this damned transfer window closes once and for all to know which players I can count on. But Pedro gave his all."

Lionel Messi opened the scoring for Barca on the cusp of half-time at the Camp Nou, but Aritz Aduriz scored his fourth goal of the two-legged tie to equalise late on and force the draw.
