Chelsea shocked the Premier League world by signing Barcelona winger Pedro to a £21.4m deal after his move to Manchester United seemed to be a foregone conclusion.
The Blues were relatively passive throughout the transfer window, but they have kicked their spending up a notch since their 3-0 loss to Manchester City.
The Spanish international had been eager to transfer to the Premier League after struggling for first-team action at Barcelona.
Pedro dropped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following the arrivals of Neymar and Luis Suarez in recent seasons, but still managed to score 11 goals in just 15 starts for the Catalan giants.
Pedro will also offer versatility at Stamford Bridge, as he can play forward and midfielder.
The 28-year-old winger appeared on Chelsea TV and gave a brief message to Blues fans after signing with the defending champions.
Here is the full video of Pedro’s reaction to his shock signing from the official Chelsea Twitter account.
