Reports in Spain reveals that Liverpool are ready to challenge Chelsea for Pedro’s signature. What is more the Catalan media claims that the Reds are willing to pay the buy-out clause for the winger.
Since few weeks Pedro is heavily linked with a move to England. Liverpool, Arsenal and of course Chelsea are really keen on signing Barcelona’s winger. It was said that the Blues are in pole position to sign Pedro, but according to the latest news, Liverpool have made a bid that can change everything.
The Catalan media claims that the Reds are willing to pay the buy-out clause for the Spanish player. We are talking here about the amount of £20.9m. Liverpool are urgently looking for a replacement for Raheem Sterling who has joined Manchester City lately.
Pedro’s transfer to Liverpool would be a real suprise, as the Spanish winger stated some days ago that he is not interested in joining any club that will not participate in the Champions League.
While Jose Mourinho clearly stated that he would not spend £21m on Pedro. So as long as Barcelone will not lower their price, Pedro’s transfer at Stamford Bridge will not take place.
According to the latest informations, any decisions regarding Pedro’s future will be taken after Barcelona’s presidential elections.
