Barcelona winger Pedro is set to have a medical on Thursday & will be unveiled on Friday this week as Blues dash out on £22million for the transfer.
Pedro is to undergo a medical in London tomorrow as he closes in on his transfer from Barcelona to Chelsea.
Manchester United have been linked with the player all summer, but the move stalled as they where reluctant to meet his £22million release clause, which Chelsea have.
United manager Louis van Gaal, had not convinced the player enough that he wanted him, and the Blues have swooped in to complete the transfer, after meeting Pedro’s buy-out clause.
United chief-executive Ed Woodward even flew to Catalonia this week, but the clubs could not complete the deal.
Arsenal have been linked with Pedro for the bulk of this summer’s transfer window, but failed to show significant efforts in their bid to land the multiple award winning forward.
