Report: Pedro set for Chelsea

Pedro Rodriguez is reportedly on the brink of joining Chelsea from Barcelona despite Manchester United’s long-standing interest.

Marca says the winger is in London to undergo a medical with the Premier League champions after the clubs agreed a fee last night.

Chelsea will pay €28m and a further €2m in variables, outbidding the United offer of €25m upfront and €5m to come later.

Manchester City were also in the running but Marca say there was never a formal offer for the Spain international.
