Soccer Rumors: Chelsea is ready to make a £22 million bid for Pedro

Soccer News and Rumors:

The transfer rumors about Pedro keep coming. The forgotten star from Barcelona hasn’t seen a lot of playing time this season and it won’t be a surprise if he chooses to leave his current club. He is still relatively young and has the qualities to be a starter in almost every European team. However, the attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suarez has been more than dominating in Barcelona and because of that he has spent most of the season on the bench.

The latest rumors are that Chelsea is ready to pay £22 million in order to sign him. Pedro would be a great addition for the Blues, as he combines speed and technique, which make him a very elite player. Furthermore, he has won everything in both club and international level. However, even though he has the skills and the experience, it’s still questionable how much playing time he will receive even if he chooses to play for Chelsea next season. The Blues own some pretty good wings, in the face of Eden Hazard, Willian and Juan Cuadrado, and it’s hard to predict how often Pedro will find himself on the pitch.

Jose Mourinho would definitely be very happy to have a player of his caliber on his team. It should be noted that even though Pedro hasn’t been used a lot by Barca throughout this season, he has still found a way to remain effective and productive. He has five goals and five assist in the 1291 minutes he has played in La Liga. That means that every 129 minutes he has created a goal.

In my opinion, a lot of clubs will try to lure Pedro, so it’s hard to predict where exactly he will choose to play. In my opinion, the player will sign with the team that promises him a lot of playing time and has the best surrounding cast.
