The girlfriend of Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has emerged as one of the key factors in Pedro’s move to Stamford Bridge, which was confirmed today.
The Spanish winger finalised his £21 million deal from Barcelona today after completing a medical yesterday.
But, it has been reported that, as well as phone calls from Fabregas and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, phone calls made by Fabregas’ girlfriend, Daniella Semaan, helped sway Pedro over a move to London.
Semaan exchanged a series of calls with Pedro’s wife, Carolina Martin, about the pros and cons of the capital city, thus giving a helping hand to Chelsea’s transfer negotiations.
Fabregas and Pedro remained good friends after Fabregas moved back to England following a spell at Barca.
