Pedro’s agent Antonio Sanz has revealed that Manchester United missed out on the winger because they ‘fell asleep’.
United seemed to be leading the chase for the Spain international until Chelsea came in and signed him on Thursday.
Pedro’s agent while speaking to Radio Club Tenerife said
“Maybe Manchester United fell asleep. The negotiation with Chelsea was like a lightning bolt,”
”It is common knowledge that United were in the bidding for Pedro, but Chelsea were faster and within 24 hours reached an agreement with the club. It was a whirlwind.”
