IT WASN’T long after Pedro’s arrival at Chelsea the dealclinching truth behind the deal was revealed – Cesc Fabregas’ girlfriend Daniella Semaan! The story goes that the Spanish international was all set to join Manchester United from Barcelona.
But while United didn’t get the deal done, Fabregas’ partner did by making a phone call to Pedro’s wife Carolina Martin.
“It always rains in Manchester and it’s ALWAYS cold,” she may or may not have said in her attempts to sell London and the Blues.
It obviously worked with the 28-year-old World Cup and Champions League winner signing a four-year-deal as Chelsea forked out £21.1m.
Fabregas and Semaan already have one child together and are expecting their second later this year.
And no doubt her negotiating skills will come in handy again if Jose Mourinho fancies any more Spanish stars.
