A lot has been talked about Pedro in the last few days. Chelsea has constantly been linked to the forward for the past week and as it stands, this transfer looks a real possibility for the Blues!
According to the metro:
“The 27-year-old forward agreed to a buyout clause of €150m (£110m) despite finding himself down the pecking order behind Neymar and Lionel Messi but the arrival of Arda Turan from Atletico looks to have changed his position further.
Pedro confirmed his release clause is now a temptingly low fee off €30m (£21.4m).”
An 110 Million pound release clause? That’s laughable! No one in their right mind would spend that kind of money unless the player in question is Ronaldo/Messi. Although the arrival of Turan seems to have changed the situation a bit and Pedro reportedly wants to quit Barcelona for the regular first team football.
When quizzed, Spanish forward had the following to say on the situation:
“It’s true, we agreed to reduce the value of the buyout clause and it’s true there are offers,’ he said. ‘I don’t want to think about the future, I want to rest, remain calm, start pre-season on Wednesday with the squad and we will see what happens after that.”

Frankly, I don’t see why Pedro would want to stay at Barcelona to waste his career on the bench. The 27-year-old is a really capable player and Chelsea seems to be genuinely interested in his services. Besides, we do have the likes of Fabregas and Azpilicueta to give him company, that is if he wants to come to the Bridge!
With Chelsea a bit short on the quality in Attacking Midfield, Pedro could be a very nice addition as he would compete with Willian for the starting spot and can fill in for Hazard if the Belgian is unavailable. If he can turn out anything close to like Alexis Sanchez for Arsenal, we are definitely set for another league title. Now, hopefully, we can close this deal quickly because we really need a player of his quality and experience next season!
