Pedro’s last match at the Stamford Bridge was on 26th July in their last Premier League match of the 2019-20 campaign. He has already agreed on a deal with AS Roma. He will be joining the Italian club on a free transfer.
The 32-year-old has made 137 appearances for the Blues netting 29 goals in all competitions. But this season he has made just 8 Premier League starts and 21 appearances in all competitions.

“Thanks a lot to the club’s board, to the coaches and teammates I’ve had, and of course to the fans: thank you for the experience of being a member of your big family. I’ve been very happy here, you’ve made me feel like home.”
“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.”
