Earlier today, here at Vital Chelsea, we ran an article relating to the four players in the first-team squad who have contracts that expire at the end of the season.
Our article – chelsea-make-a-crucial-decision-relating-to-four-players – covered the inference that, when it comes to the four players who see their contracts expire at the end of the season, all contract talks have been put on hold.
However, it seems that one of the quartet, Pedro, will definitely be saying goodbye to Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to The Daily Mail, Pedro has made his mind up that now is the time to call time on a Chelsea career that has lasted five years.
Picking up on an interview that Pedro gave to a sports cow in his native Spain, our referenced source carries the following remarks that are attributed to the 32-year-old:
“I’m terminating my contract, but right now it’s not the most important thing, nor have I stopped to think about it.
“From there on what has to do with my future will come, but right now it’s not the most important thing when you don’t even know when you’re going to train again.”
Some enlightening words from Pedro there when it comes to both his future and the troubled times the world is currently living in.
Pedro arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2015, from Barcelona, having won everything the game could offer with the Catalan club, he was also a winner of the World Cup with his native Spain.
A fee of £21 million changed hands and since joining Chelsea Pedro has added Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League medals to his glittering collection.
I’m sure Pedro will recall his time with Chelsea with fondness and the support will offer similar sentiments.
In completing this article, I’d like you to recall your favourite Pedro moment, I’ll set the ball rolling by naming mine as that wonder goal he scored, against Tottenham Hotspur, in the 2016 / 2017 season when his skills, just outside the Tottenham penalty area bamboozled the defence before he curled a lovely shot into the top-corner.
An exquisite goal.
Please feel free to drop your favourite Pedro memory into the comment facility beneath this article.
