Pedro to seal Roma transfer when Chelsea contract expires at end of 2019/20 season

Chelsea winger Pedro will join Italian giants Roma when his contract expires at Stamford Bridge at the end of next month.

The former Barcelona star was poised to leave the Blues on June 30 after outlining his plans not to extend his stay with the Premier League club.

But following the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, which saw English football sent into shutdown mode for over three months, Pedro has since agreed to extend his Blues contract on a short-term basis, ensuring Frank Lampard has enough cover to see the Blues through until Sunday, July 26 – the final day of the 2019/20 campaign.

However, once the season has reached its conclusion, the 32-year-old winger, who has been with the Blues since 2015, will be allowed to leave to explore a new venture.

And that new venture, according to a report by Sky Sports, is to be Serie A club Roma, who have won the race to sign him on a free-transfer.

Since arriving at Stamford Bridge five years ago, Pedro has experienced highs and lows, with the successes of winning the Premier League title in 2017 and FA Cup one year later being his highlights.
