Chelsea winger Pedro has signed a two-year deal worth £50,000 per week with Serie A giants AS Roma with an option to extend the contract by another 12 months.
The deal will 32-year-old join the I Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) when his contract with the Blues expires at the end of the 2019/2020 season.
Pedro’s Chelsea deal was due to expire at the end of June, but he signed a short-term extension earlier this week to allow him to end the campaign with Frank Lampard’s side.
Pedro’s exit will bring an end to his five-year spell in London following his arrival in back August 2015. The Spaniard has scored 43 goals in 201 games since joining the Blues and helped them win the Premier League in 2017, FA Cup in 2018 and Europa League in 2019.
