Pedro’s unfortunate move from Barcelona to Chelsea

first_img The arrival of Guus Hiddink has improved Chelsea’s form, but overall the impression from this season remains negative. Chelsea are 10th in the Premier League, nine points back from the Europa League with just nine games to go. They’re in the FA Cup last eight, but they were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday after losing to PSG home and away.  10/03/2016 However, seven months later, the reality is that Pedro’s first year in England has not gone as expected. The forward has had minutes, no-one will deny that. He’s played 31 games, 23 from the beginning, but Chelsea’s results have not gone to plan. The team found themselves on a dreadful run, which ended up with Mourinho being dismissed as manager.  Pedro’s move to Chelsea from Barcelona last summer was met with indifference by most people. The eruption of the Messi-Suarez-Neymar trident in the previous season had left the Canary Islander playing second fiddle, even though he continued to score important goals.  CET As time has passed, it turns out he may have had minutes this season at Camp Nou, but he wanted a change of scenery, thinking that it would be good for his hopes of going to Euro 2016 with Spain. Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea arrived with an offer of 27 million euros and the operation was done. Pedro won the European Super Cup for Barça on August 11 and then scored his first goal in his first Premier League start 12 days later. It seemed like the right decision.  On an individual level, Pedro’s appearances have seen four goals and three assists. It’s provoked a price fall, according to transfer market, from 27 million euros to 23 million euros. Although still likely, his presence in Vicente del Bosque’s squad for the European Championships isn’t as certain as it once was. Upd. at 14:03 Miki Sorialast_img read more

PSG have NO intention of selling Marquinhos

first_img CEST Sources close to the Ligue 1 club’s owner say that Al-Khelaifi “will never sell Marquinhos,” assuring that there is no chance the player will leave in the summer.  Barcelona, though, believe that pressure from Marquinhos on the club will lead to a change of opinion from Al-Khelaifi.  Paris Saint-Germain have shut the door on Marquinhos leaving the club, with Barcelona keen to sign the defender in the summer.  It’s caused the player to become unhappy in the French capital and he and his agent, Giuliano Bertolucci, have reportedly accepted an offer from Barcelona, although PSG will be tougher to strike a deal with. Despite recent information suggesting the player has agreed a deal with Barça for next season, the French club have told SPORT that the Brazilian is not for sale.  PSG rejected Barça’s 45 million euro offer for the 21-year-old, obliging the Catalan club to raise their offer to 50 million. center_img 09/04/2016 The owner of PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, is not ready to negotiate the exit of a player who is considered a key part of Laurent Blanc’s plans at the club.  Albert Masnou The player is not going through his best moment with the club and Blanc didn’t use him at all in the Champions League draw with Manchester City in the week.  Upd. at 19:31 last_img read more
