Chelsea Football Club has announced the signing of Pedro from Barcelona for a fee of £21.1million. The Blues swooped with the Spanish winger on the brink of moving to Premier League rivals Manchester United. Pedro expressed his delight upon arriving at Stamford Bridge after a year out of favour with the Catalan giants.

The 28-year-old has accumulated three Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles, as well as being a world and European champion on the international stage. He said:

‘I am very happy to be here. I am very excited to start my adventure at Chelsea and I am here to keep winning titles. ‘Thanks to the club and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to put the blue shirt on.’

United looked to have sealed the deal to take Pedro to Old Trafford, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward travelling to Barcelona to tie up the deal. Mourinho stole a march in the chase by calling up the winger personally to convince him to move to west London.
