Pedro joins Chelsea from Barcelona in £21.4m deal

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Pedro from Barcelona in a deal that could rise to £21.4m.

Pedro, 28, had appeared to be on his way to Manchester United before the deal fell through.

The winger, who can also play as a central striker, told Chelsea’s official website: “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.

 

He has won every major trophy in his career, the latest being the UEFA Super Cup when he scored the winning goal in Barcelona’s thrilling 5-4 victory over Sevilla.

He was part of Spain’s World Cup squad in South Africa in 2010, starting in the semi-final and final, and again in Brazil last year
