Midfielder Pedro has left Chelsea for Roma.
It’s official – former Blues player Pedro has joined AS Roma and signed a contract with them for 3 years – leaving the club at the age of 33 after 5 years at Stamford Bridge.
“I am happy to be here in Rome,” Pedro told the Serie A club’s official website. “I am excited about this new challenge and to compete for our goals in the coming seasons. I thank the fans for the welcome I have received. I hope to make them happy.”
“It is a privilege for us to be able to welcome a footballer of the depth of Pedro into the Giallorossi family,” said Roma CEO Guido Fienga. “The hope we address to him and to ourselves is that he will be able to expand his extraordinary track record of successes with AS Roma.”
Pedro released a goodbye message to Chelsea on Instagram earlier this month, when his transfer deal was sealed, saying: “It’s been a pleasure and an honour to play for this club and win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League titles, as well as competing in one of the world’s best football leagues.
“I made the right choice, I take with me wonderful and unforgettable memories. New challenges and triumphs will come for sure.”
Good luck, Pedro!
