Jose Mourinho rules out signing Pedro

The Chelsea manager was believed to be really interested in acquiring the Spanish forward from Barcelona but has stated that there is no such interest from his side

It appears that Manchester United are the favourites to secure the services of Barcelona attacker Pedro who has told the club that he wants to leave Camp Nou for a club where he will be given sufficient game time to prove his worth.

Initially, Chelsea were in pole position to sign the player but things have now taken a different direction after the club’s manager stated that he was never interested in signing Pedro, thus leaving the trail free for the Red Devils. Mourinho stated that he is more interested in signing a defender in order to balance the team.

“I am looking for a defender to finish this balance in our squad and after that we are ready to answer anything that can happen to our players,” he said.
