Chelsea news: Spaniard Pedro opens up and officially announces summer move to happen!
Chelsea winger Pedro has confirmed that he will leave Stamford Bridge in the summer when his contract expires.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few days, despite the fact the Coronavirus has dominated the headlines and the fact that the summer transfer window is still months away from opening.
But with the reports in the media all suggesting that Frank Lampard will be seeking to add a few wingers to his side in the summer, that means there will no longer be space for the likes of Pedro, who is out of contract when this season FINALLY finishes.
Now the Former Barcelona star has opened up and confirmed what many already believed, that he will not be staying beyond his contract and will indeed be leaving the club during the transfer window, He told Cadena Ser: “I’m terminating my contract, but right now it’s not the most important thing, nor have I stopped to think about it.
“The most important thing is for everyone to show solidarity.
“Whatever happens regarding my future will happen but right now is not important as we don’t even know when we will return to training.
“We have been in quarantine because one of our players [Callum Hudson-Odoi] tested positive for coronavirus, he is now well and we are very happy for him.”
Pedro has been a very good servant for us over the seasons, there is no doubt about that and many fans will wish him the best when he leaves. But the club already have a number of talented young players in the squad and with the possible arrivals in the summer, this is the perfect time to say goodbye.
He doesnt want to sit on the bench every week so surely a team from La Liga will pick him up, as there will be a bit of interest.
