Barcelona legend Carles Puyol sends a good luck message to Chelsea signing Pedro Rodriguez after £21.1m move
Carles Puyol has sent Pedro Rodriguez a good luck message after the winger completed a £21.1m move to Chelsea from Barcelona.
The World Cup winner has put pen to paper on a contract with the Premier League champions and has become their fourth signing of the summer transfer window.
Pedro won five La Liga titles, the Champions League three times, four Copa del Rey triumphs during a decorated eight-season spell in the Barcelona first-team squad.
And Pedro’s former Barcelona skipper Puyol was quick to post a message of support to the Spain international following the confirmation of the £21.1m deal.
Puyol wrote on Instagram: “Much luck @_pedro17_, I wish you the best. Many thanks for everything. Big hug my friend!”
Pedro won the 2010 World Cup with Spain before he helped La Roja win back-to-back European champions at Euro 2012.
The Spanish winger scored six goals in 35 La Liga appearances last season despite falling down the pecking order under manager Luis Enrique at Camp Nou.
