Cape Town - Chelsea are on the verge of pulling off a transfer surprise by agreeing a move to bring Pedro to the London club.

The BBC report that Chelsea have agreed a £21 million deal to sign Barcelona winger Pedro.

The 28-year-old star is "flying to London to finalise terms on the transfer".

The move comes as a shock after the Spanish winger was linked with a move to Premier League rivals Manchester United for the past two weeks.

British media report that Manchester United have dropped their interest in signing Pedro despite the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward recently flying out to Spain to discuss the transfer.
