Chelsea’s £19m signing of Pedro reportedly secured the future of a Spanish football club, who received £320,000 as part of the player’s transfer, according to Wikipedia.
The Premier League side, who currently sit second in the English top-flight standings after recording their fifth straight league victory on Saturday, thrashing Everton 5-0 at Stamford Bridge, are said to have financially stabilised Raqui San Isidro.
The Tenerife outfit nurtured the Spain international between 2003 and 2004 during his youth career, before he moved onto La Liga giants FC Barcelona.
The 29-year-old, who has 60 international caps for his country, has scored two goals and provided five assists in 13 appearances in all competitions for The Blues so far this season.
Thanks to FIFA’s ‘training and solidarity mechanism’, Pedro’s £19m switch to Stamford Bridge brought fortune to his very first football club, rewarding Raqui with an estimated £320,000 share of the transfer fee, as he played for the club up to the age of 17.
