Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger surprised after Manchester United target Pedro joined Chelsea


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he was surprised after former Barcelona winger joined Chelsea and not Manchester United.

The 28-year-old has agreed a four-year deal and is Chelsea's second signing in less than a week after the arrival of left-back Baba Rahman.

He made three official appearances for the Spanish giants this season before making the move to Stamford Bridge.

He could be in the starting line-up for Sunday's away game against West Bromwich Albion.

"It was a surprise to me," Wenger told reporters on Friday.

"I thought he was landing at Manchester but he finally landed in London.

"The story was out for such a long time that I thought he was going to go to Manchester, but then suddenly in 24 hours [he joined Chelsea].

"We've seen that before on the transfer market. I don't know what happened exactly.

"No [we made no move for him], we have many players on the flanks. Many, many players."
