Jose Mourinho has hinted Chelsea capitalised on signing Pedro after Manchester United lost interest in the former Barcelona forward.
United claim they made the decision to withdraw from discussions over the purchase of Pedro, with their declaration that they were no longer interested in the player coming after news broke that he had agreed to join Chelsea.
There has only been one match this season for Manchester United which the team won three points by beating Aston Villa anyway; however, there is a great concern! We are very good friends.
He told reporters: “I’m not happy with anyone”. “I’m not happy with Branislav Ivanovic’s form, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic”. We want to do better, and there is only one way: to work well, and better than ever, which we did all this week. I am really looking forward to playing under him and hopefully winning more titles.
“They have definitely needed another ball player”.
Shortly after their 3-0 defeat at Manchester City, Chelsea signed left-back Baba Rahman from Augsburg for £21million, and Pedro’s arrival gives Mourinho’s side fresh attacking intent. We need to play our game, our football. Tony Pulis knows that his side can play a trap game against Mourinho’s men, thus continuing more panic moves for the Blues with the summer transfer market ending next Monday. Mourinho is one of the main reasons why I’m here. “I sometimes call it the opportunity window”.
“When you have strikers like we have, why not play with two strikers?” he said. “This week we got a very good young left-back and we got one of the best attacking players in the world”.
“(Pedro) wants to play every game. I am going to the gym every day this week to get fitter.
That responsibility should well fall on Woodward’s shoulders – should the rumours of his trip to Spain be correct – as, to many, there will be little doubt that paying just over £20m is still a bargain for a player that has won nearly everything on both the domestic and global stage.
