Cheznews gathered that Pedro, the Barcelona ace could be on his way to Stamford Bridge in £22m switch.
The Spanish international could be swapping Catalonia for Kensington as the champions reportedly met a £22m release clause. The talented forward has won the treble on two occasions with Barcelona but finds himself down the pecking order behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. Pedro would add pace, skill and plenty of goals should he join the Blues.
His arrival will put to end the doubt about Cuadrado’s exit from the Bridge, with Juventus asking for a loan deal on the Colombian winger, it is then likely that his days at Chelsea are numbered.
Pedro usually plays the ball with his left foot but is actually right-footed. He can play on either side of the pitch as winger or second striker; he is good at finding the right position and has excellent technique.
During the 2009–10 season at his main club, Barcelona, he became the first player in history to score in six different official club competitions in one season (a feat later matched by teammate Lionel Messi) and he has 208 appearances to his name with 58 goals to boast of.
Chelsea have made a slow start to the summer transfer window compared to their rivals.
Jose Mourinho had a squad that were comfortably the best in the league last year, but the Portuguese will know his side must adapt to beat off the competition once again.
Asmir Begovic became the second player to join the Blues this week, completing an £8m switch from Stoke City.
The signature of Begovic and Radamel Falcao represent a statement of intent from the London club but came as direct replacements for Petr Cech and Didier Drogba.
Mourinho will surely be looking to fine tune his squad and there are a number of names on his wishlist. But who will be joining Chelsea? And who will be leaving?
Mourinho is keen on retaining the EPL, a feat he knows will not come easy and with other clubs fortifying their squad it is wise to do likewise.
