Pedro has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea’s title rivals Manchester United before the Red Devils pulled out of the race to sign the winger on Wednesday.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website following his big-money move, Pedro spoke of his desire to win silverware under Jose Mourinho’s charge following a decorated Barcelona career.

“I am very happy to be here. I am very excited to start my adventure at Chelsea and I am here to keep winning titles,” Pedro said.

“Thanks to the club and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to put the blue shirt on.”

The Chelsea signing won five La Liga titles, the Champions League three times and four Copa del Rey crowns during an eight-season spell in the Barcelona first-team squad.
