Man United Have Some Competition As Title Rival Make Late Move For Pedro
By Barry Arnold Updated

Chelsea will reportedly attempt to hijack Pedro's move to Man United after the 28-year-old put a time limit on Louis van Gaal securing his signature.

The Daily Mail report that Jose Mourinho was considering the player earlier this summer but wasn't sure but he is now ready to step up his interest in the Spain international with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich also keen.

Despite that, United are still in pole position for the winger after agreeing personal terms yesterday with Ed Woodward still in Barcelona negotiating a fee with the Catalan giants.

Pedro has reportedly increased the pressure on the Red Devils after stating that they have three days to complete his Old Trafford move before he considers other offers, which would open the door for United's rivals.

Pedro has a £22m release clause in his contract, but a potential move by Chelsea could make life difficult for Manchester United to cut a deal for the World Cup winner. Man City have also expressed an interest and could yet join the race.

Here's the rest of Wednesday's Transfer Gossip:
