Chelsea sign Pedro Rodriguez

After being linked all summer with a move to Manchester United, Pedro Rodriguez has signed for the Red Devils' Premier League rivals Chelsea. The Blues have snapped him for a fee of 30 million euros, and he has put pen to paper a four year deal at Stamford Bridge.

The move re-unites the 28 year old with his former Barcelona teammate Cesc Fabregas.

It is understood that Barcelona were happy to keep Pedro, but the latter had got frustrated after being kept on the bench at the Nou Camp in order to accomodate Messi, Suarez, Neymar and co. It was a thirst for regular first team action that forced him to seek a transfer.

3 million euros of the transfer fee are linked to performance.

Pedro is expected to make his Chelsea debut this weekend against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
