English premier league giants, Chelsea Football Club have in a surprise move agreed to a £21m deal for the permanent transfer of Spanish winger, Pedro from Barcelona FC.

Soccer aficionados were almost certain that the Spaniard will be joining Manchester United before the end of the current transfer window. Chelsea Football Club had something else up their sleeves as they have hijacked the deal.

BBC Sport reports that the 28-year-old is flying to London where he is expected to finalize his move to Stamford Bridge. If the deal is wrapped up quickly, this will be Chelsea second major signing in the space of 72 hours; just 48 hours ago, the Blues completed the signing of left-back, Baba Rahman from Augsburg.

The Blues are also looking to sign defender, John Stones from Everton but have had their bids for the young English centre-back repeatedly rejected.

Chelsea faces West Brom on Sunday for their third premier league match of the 2015/2016 season.
