Vote for Pedro

It’s been a while since Chelsea signed an attacking midfielder/winger to supplement the 6,000 they already have at Stamford Bridge.

With reserves running low, Spain’s SPORT publication report that Jose Mourinho wants to bring Barca’s Pedro to the club.

The 22-year-old is still to sign a new deal with the Catalan club, and has a relatively paltry £22m buyout clause.

Pog on and on

Fresh from spending a whopping £49m on Raheem Sterling over the weekend, Manchester City aren’t in the mood to stop there.

The Star reckon that Manuel Pellegrini is keen to add Paul Pogba to his squad as soon as possible, but there’s a hitch.

Apparently a former representative of the French marvel still owns his image rights, and that simply won’t do if you’re forking out £80m.

De Gea ultimatum

After a weekend of securing the services of Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, Ed Woodward is full of machismo.

According to the Sun, the United chief exec has given Real Madrid a no nonsense ultimatum regarding David de Gea.

He has reportedly made clear to his counterparts at the Bernabeu that they need to make serious progress TODAY or there’s no deal to be made. Cripes.
