Barcelona winger Pedro is on the verge of signing for Chelsea, despite formerly being declared as 99% certain to join Manchester United.
Man United are no longer in the running to buy the 28-year-old, who is set to undergo a medical at Stamford Bridge this week.

Missing out on Pedro could be a big blow for United.
Red Devils fans will be very annoyed when they hear why one of their top transfer targets is moving to one of their biggest rivals.
According to the Daily Mail, United’s prolonged haggling in an attempt to pay £3m of Pedro’s £21.1m fee in add-ons frustrated Pedro.
United’s unwillingness to just pay what is a fairly modest fee up front made Pedro unconvinced about how desperately they wanted him.
Furthermore, the Mail say that Pedro was keen to live in London.
