Pedro has agreed a deal to join AS Roma on a free transfer, reports Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano.
Chelsea were successful in extending the 32-year-old’s contract until the season end after which he is free to move elsewhere.
Pedro will join AS Roma as a free agent at the end of the season. Total agreement reached – he’s gonna leave Chelsea. Here we go! ??? #Roma #CFC #Chelsea #transfers— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 25, 2020
Football Italia claims that Pedro’s deal with the Serie A outfit is set to last for two seasons worth €3.5m-a-year. He was signed from Barcelona in 2015 in a deal worth £19m. He has appeared in over 200 games for Chelsea, racking up 43 goals and 28 assists so far.
Frank Lampard has allowed him to feature in just 9 Premier League games this season, marking a fitting end to his time at England. Pedro could still come handy in the race for top four this season as games come thick and fast through the next month. He was mostly used as a backup option at West London but proved to be a capable one.
Now, news outlets will be focused on Willian’s next club as the Brazilian is also set to leave Stamford Bridge after this campaign.
