Furthermore, coach Paulo Fonseca is said to have called the Spaniard personally, telling him his club will respect its part of the deal.

Although he turns 33 next month, the newspaper explains Pedro’s versatility – which allows him to play anywhere across the front line – greatly appealed to Fonseca.

He has won a Premier League title, an FA Cup and the Europa League with Chelsea and also helped Barcelona win three Champions Leagues.

The attacker will arrive on a free transfer, with his contract at Stamford Bridge expiring at the end of this season.
