Chelsea and Barcelona are in talks over a quick-fire return to the Camp Nou for Blues winger Pedro, according to Spanish news outlet Sport.
The World Cup winner infamously moved to Stamford Bridge last summer when he appeared to be set for a move to Manchester United.
However, amid the nightmare season endured by the lacklustre Premier League champions, the Spain international has struggled to adapt to life in England.
Despite a good debut against West Brom, in which he scored and assisted countryman Diego Costa, things have stalled ever since.
The 28-year old La Masia graduate has notched just three times across his 27 appearances for the Blues.
The report suggests it is in fact Chelsea who initiated talks this month as they bid to send the player back to the Catalan club on a temporary basis.
Having appeared for the Blaugrana earlier this season in the UEFA Super Cup, Pedro’s only choice would be his former charges should he leave London this winter.
FIFA rules state that no player can register for three different teams in one season.
