Chelsea Finally Complete Pedro Signing From Barcelona

Chelsea have completed the signing of Pedro from Barcelona in a deal that could rise to £21.4m.

Pedro, 28, had appeared to be on his way to Manchester United before the deal fell through.

The winger, who can also play as a central striker, told Chelsea's official website: 'I am very happy to be here. I am very excited to start my adventure at Chelsea and I am here to keep winning titles.

"Thanks to the club and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to put the blue shirt on."

Pedro's Chelsea role?

We check the stats to see how Pedro compares to the likes of Hazard, Willian and Oscar.

Pedro came through the ranks at Barca, joining their academy in 2004 and making his first-team debut in 2008.

He has won every major trophy in his career, the latest being the UEFA Super Cup when he scored the winning goal in Barcelona's thrilling 5-4 victory over Sevilla.

He was part of Spain's World Cup squad in South Africa in 2010, starting in the semi-final and final, and again in Brazil last year.
