Chelsea star Pedro Rodriguez has revealed Premier League this past summer, according to Express.
Pedro was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United during the transfer window, but the Spain international ended up signing for Jose Mourinho’s men prior to deadline day.
And it all started brilliantly for the winger seen as surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp, as Pedro scored and provided an assist on his match-winning debut.
However, it has been all downhill since, with the 28-year-old struggling with niggling injuries while the club has slumped to a miserable.
Despite professing his love for the Catalans and even going back to Camp Nou for a farewell attended by all of his team-mates, Pedro still made the decision to move because of a perceived lack of playing time at the club.
Being continuously overlooked by Luis Enrique was enough to finally give the player the nudge he required to cut ties with the Blaugrana.
But no sooner has he started his new journey with the Blues than he is again being reduced to a bit part player, having only completed 90 minutes on four out of 11 occasions so far. So much for being a regular then.
Pedro’s bad luck, or bad judgment if you prefer, has also coincided with Chelsea’s worst run of form from the start of a season in over 35 years.
Quite how the club have gone from a team that won the Premier League at a canter last season to one that has already lost five out of their 10 top flight games in the current campaign is anyone’s guess.
An encouraging debut against West Brom seemed to suggest the 28-year-old would be hit in the Premier league, but he has been largely anonymous ever since as his new side has struggled to find their feet.
Chelsea is currently 15th in the Premier League while manager Mourinho could be just one game from the sack.
Jose Mourinho already looks like a dead man walking and another defeat or two will surely see the back of the Portuguese.
That in itself could present a massive problem for Pedro who was brought in by Mourinho as Manchester United dilly-dallied over his signing.
There would be no guarantee that any manager would want to use his services and with only one more goal since debut – at Walsall in the League Cup – plus one assist, you’d be hard pressed to argue against any new man in charge settling for others in the wide roles that Pedro covets.
And Pedro is reported to have told team-mate and friend Cesc Fabregas he wishes he had never moved.
Spanish publication Fichajes claim the World Cup winner would be happy to return to the Nou Camp after his dream move turned into a nightmare.
He initially left Barca due to concerns at a lack of playing time but could now be ready to return and take his place back on the bench in Catalonia.
