Chelsea are back in the hunt for Barcelona star Pedro and are willing to meet the player's £21 million release clause.

Manchester United were thought to be the front-runners for Pedro's signature, but they may be about to pay for their hesitation.

It seems Jose Mourinho is willing to cut his losses on Juan Cuadrado following his £26.1 million move in January, and is actively looking for a replacement, with Pedro being earmarked.

The Metro suggests Chelsea are willing to offer Pedro a four-year deal to tempt him away from the Nou Camp, a club he has been at since 2004.

One person not keen on the deal is Luis Suarez who wants Pedro to reject any Premier League advances.

"Pedro's thing is an individual decision," Suarez told Spanish publication Marca. "He's had many years at the club, he has won many titles and his decision will be respected.

"But as a team-mate, obviously, I want Pedro to stay because of the importance that he has on a group level."
