Al Sadd have edge in battle for Chelsea attacker Pedro

Qatar is firming as the most likely destination for Chelsea attacker Pedro at the end of this season.

The Spanish veteran comes off contract in June and is expected to be on the move from London this summer.

Interest from Italy has arrived, with Roma and Lazio both in contact with Pedro's minders.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport says they face stiff competition from Xavi's Al Sadd, which boast the spending power to trump their European rivals.

Xavi and Pedro are former Barcelona teammates and that could be the clincher for Al Sadd in the coming weeks.
