Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern were shocked at the news coming out of Stamford Bridge yesterday, as master of the mind games Jose Mourinho sprung another surprise.
The Special One has re-entered the transfer market after the Blues dismal start to the season, and surprised everyone – not least fans of Manchester United – by stealing Pedro from Barcelona.
Bets were off for the Spanish forward to complete the switch to Old Trafford, but reports claim Mourinho and former teammate Cesc Fabregas have worked their magic to convince Pedro to swap Manchester for west London.
And the Blues transfer business is unlikely to end there.
Mourinho made it clear he is looking for more players with his not so subtle subbing of John Terry during the 3-0 defeat at the Etihad, a move many perceived to be a message to owner Roman Abramovich to splash some more cash.
Here we have identified five players that could end up following Pedro to Stamford Bridge before the close of the window.
