Chelsea winger Pedro will join Roma at the end of the season when his contract expires.

The 32-year-old has signed with the Serie A club a two-year deal worth £50,000 a week, which has the option of extending the contract for another 12 months.

Pedro’s Chelsea contract was set to expire at the end of the month but earlier this week he signed a short-term extension to allow him to end the Blues campaign.

After his arrival from boyhood club Barcelona in August 2015, Pedro ‘s departure would put an end to his five-year spell in London.

Since joining Chelsea, he has scored 43 goals in 201 games and helped them win the 2017 Premier League,  2018 FA Cup and 2019 Europa League.

Pedro has played just 18 times since Frank Lampard became head coach last summer, but will hope to help Chelsea to achieve a Champions League place for next season and lift the FA Cup again before he departs.

Chelsea has already agreed on deals to sign Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner at the end of the season – both players who can play out wide and will help to fill the gap left by Pedro.
