Chelsea looking to hijack Man Utd Pedro deal

The Daily Telegraph reports that the Blues are ready to hijack Manchester United’s move for the highly-rated Spaniard.

United looked set to finalise Pedro’s move to Old Trafford as executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward flew to Spain for talks on Monday.

Chelsea have now entered the race to sign the Spaniard after holding their own talks with Barcelona.

The Blues are ready to match Pedro’s £21.2million release fee.
