Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has opened up about the signing of Pedro.
Chelsea wrapped up a £21.4m deal for the Spain international yesterday just days after he had appeared set to join Manchester United.
And Mourinho hailed Pedro’s ambition to achieve more rather than settle for an easy life at the Camp Nou.
“He has something I really like: a desire to leave one of the best clubs in the world,” Mourinho said on the Chelsea website.
“For a player like him, loved in the club, he loves the club, and wants to leave for something more, that’s ambition.
“He’s played with Messi, Iniesta, all these stars but he wants more. I’m really happy with this attitude.
“When I’m told a player wants to leave Barcelona or Real Madrid I always put a question mark. Normally the rumours are untrue. This was true.
“It’s a moment for him to enjoy a different challenge, different culture, and leave the comfort zone.”
