In a sensational turn of events, it now looks Pedro will bot be joining United this summer after all, with BBC Sport reporting the shocking news that the Barcelona winger is due in London today after making a huge U-turn and agreeing a deal to join Chelsea instead.

Despite there being interest for much of this window from Louis Van Gaal in the Spanish attacker it now looks like the 28-year old is heading to play under Mourinho, after a fee of £21 million was agreed.

Manchester United are thought to have been lining up the Nou Camp star as a like-for-like replacement for the departed Angel Di Maria, however today’s developments have really upset the Red Devils fans and leave Ed Woodward with little time on his hands to make any significant signings.
