Barcelona forward Pedro is ready to leave the Camp Nou for Chelsea following conversations with Jose Mourinho and Cesc Fabregas.

This is according to Barcelona-based newspaper Sport, who understand the Spain international has experienced a change of heart in recent weeks after signing a contract extension with the Catalan giants last month.

Pedro rejected tempting offers from Arsenal, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain last month following a telephone conversation with Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique, who told the World Cup winner that he remains an important part of his plans, but has been lured by the reigning Premier League champions.

Pedro fears that staying at Barcelona will affect his chances of playing for Spain at next summer’s European Championships in France.

The 27-year-old made 35 La Liga appearances for Barça last season, but only 15 of those appearances were starts. The versatile forward only managed to score a disappointing six goals in return as a result.

Chelsea ready to pay €30m buyout clause

While Pedro would still face competition for a first-team place at Stamford Bridge, he would not find himself faced with the nigh-on hopeless situation of trying to oust one of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Neymar.

Chelsea are now ready to pay Pedro’s new €30 million buyout clause and, after securing the services of Arda Turan from Atletico Madrid last week, Barcelona are likely to give the Spaniard their best wishes if he does decide to sign with the Blues over the coming weeks.
