It has been revealed that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is eager to trump Manchester United for Barcelona winger Pedro.
The Telegraph claims that Mourinho could pounce for the Barcelona winger if his proposed Old Trafford switch drags on.
United chief executive Ed Woodward has reportedly jetted off to Spain to secure a deal.
The club are said to be willing to pay his £22m release clause to ensure he signs this week.
However, they could face late competition from Chelsea if they can offload Juan Cuadrado or Victor Moses.
