The 28-year-old moved to
Stamford Bridge despite
weeks of negotiations with
Manchester United and now
hopes to match his trophy
haul at Camp Nou with his
new team
Pedro says Jose Mourinho was
key to his move to Chelsea
having previously been close
to joining Manchester United.

The 28-year-old arrived from
Barcelona in a deal worth up
to £21.4 million (€30m) earlier
on Thursday after the Premier
League champions had
hijacked the Old Trafford
outfit’s own attempts with an
11th-hour bid.

Pedro, who won 20 trophies
during seven years in the
Barcelona first team, hopes to
continue that success at
Stamford Bridge alongside
international team-mates
Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas
and Cesar Azpilicueta.

“It’s absolutely great to be
here … [Mourinho] is one of
the main reasons why I’m
here. He phoned me a few
times and said he needed me
to make the team stronger,”
he told the club’s official
website.

“He has won titles wherever
he has been. I am really
looking forward to playing
under him and hopefully
winning more titles.

“I spoke to Cesc. We are very
good friends. I knew I would
feel at home here and that
was one of the main reasons
why I decided to join.

“He’s a great player, he’s got
brilliant vision and he links up
really well with the other
attacking players. I know we
work well together on the
pitch so I can’t wait to play
with him again.

“I have also played with Diego
Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta
before, for the national team,
so I feel very comfortable
here.

“I do everything possible to
win. I have helped Barcelona
win titles and I want to do
exactly the same thing at
Chelsea, because ultimately we
are all here to win things.”
