Chelsea have agreed a deal with Barcelona to sign winger Pedro for a fee of £21m. The 28-year-old, who was a target for Manchester United, is in London to finalise terms on the transfer.
The Spain international is a product of the La Liga club’s academy and has scored 99 goals in 326 appearances since his debut in 2008. He will be Chelsea’s second signing in less than a week after the arrival of Ghana defender Baba Rahman.
Pedro scored the winner as the Catalan club beat Sevilla 5-4 in the Super Cup. Manchester United were interested in Pedro as they look to replace Argentina winger Angel Di Maria, who has joined French champions Paris St-Germain for £44.3m.
