After weeks of negotiations and speculations it seems Pedro will finally make his move. Initially destined for Manchester United, it appears that the Blues have hijacked the transfer only a day after swooping in.
Manchester United had prolonged discussions with Barcelona over the transfer, but have now lost out on their second target after Otamendi, due to haggling over a few million euros.
Barcelona were after 30 million euros for Pedro, but United only agreed to offer 25 million euros.
MARCA are also claiming that Pedro is in London now and will undergo his Chelsea medical, before joining up with his teammates.
Here is what Twitter thinks about the deal.
If Chelsea hijack the Pedro deal it will be like Willian all over again. This is why long drawn out transfer sagas are a bad move @ManUtd!

So Pedro off to Chelsea? How on earth have we managed to get this deal wrong? Ridiculous. The Muller bid must be because we’ve missed out?

Ouch. Man Utd simply can’t catch a break in their efforts to sign a new forward. Pedro going to Chelsea instead.

Pedro doing his homework on Chelsea/United with mates at both said to be key in him reconsidering own first preference.
