Roma interested in Pedro
Italian side Roma are interested in signing Pedro in the summer, with his current deal expiring at Stamford Bridge.
The Spaniard will be available to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season, and Corriere dello Sport, per TEAMtalk, report that Roma will offer the 32-year-old a deal that will more than half his wages.
Roma will offer €3m-a-year, plus bonuses, to try and persuade the former Spain winger to move to the Italian capital.
Pedro is currently earning £100,000-a-week at Chelsea, meaning he’d be on about £50,000-a-week if he did sign for the Italian giants.
Chelsea handed Neuer boost
Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is set to leave the club at the end of the season, according to Lothar Matthaus.
Neuer has been at Bayern for almost ten years and has played nearly 400 games for the Bundesliga champions during that period.
However, the German goalkeeper wants a new five-year deal at the club, and this is something Bayern are reluctant to offer him.
Speaking to Sky Deutschland, per the Daily Star, Matthaus believes all of the signs are pointing towards Neuer leaving the club.
