Pedro Rodriguez is the latest player to be unveiled at the Stamford Bridge.

The Spanish winger bid goodbye to European champions and waltzed to London where he will be expected to bring the Spanish flair into a Jose team that has become an icon of rigidity lately in the English Premier League.

The arrival of Pedro concludes the urgency in need of results after the humiliation at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Pedro wants to win trophies at Chelsea after being convinced to move to the Premier League champions by Jose Mourinho and Cesc Fabregas.

The 28-year-old on Thursday signed a four-year deal after the Blues agreed a £21.4million (30 million euros) fee with Barcelona, with £2.1million of the payment being performance-related add-ons.

The Spain winger, who had been a target of Manchester United, immediately trained with his new team-mates at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground and could make his debut in Sunday’s match at West Brom.

It was Mourinho and former Barcelona playmaker Fabregas, whose first season at Stamford Bridge ended with a Premier League and Capital One Cup double, who persuaded Pedro to join the Blues.

Pedro said on chelseafc.com: “He [Mourinho] is one of the main reasons why I’m here. He phoned me a few times and said he needed me to make the team stronger.

“He has won titles wherever he has been. I am really looking forward to playing under him and hopefully winning more titles.

“I spoke to Cesc. We are very good friends. I knew I would feel at home here and that was one of the main reasons why I decided to join.

“He’s a great player, he’s got brilliant vision and he links up really well with the other attacking players. I know we work well together on the pitch so I can’t wait to play with him again.

“I have also played with Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta before, for the national team, so I feel very comfortable here.”

One hopes that the arrival of Pedro is not a panic acquisition, after the draw against Swansea and loss at Etihad Stadium,  which is unlike Jose Mourinho. Time, will surely be a true judge of the player.
