Chelsea's Jose Mourinho denies competing with Man Utd for Pedro

Manager Jose Mourinho said Chelsea did not intend to "beat" Manchester United to the signing of £21m Pedro.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward flew to Barcelona to try to finalise a deal, but persuasion from Mourinho was one of the factors that led the Pedro to choosing the Blues.

The story is too old to be commented.
