Chelsea winger, Pedro has expressed joy as he pen down another year at Stamford Bridge after impressing since his 2015 move from Barcelona.
Pedro has extended his contract at Chelsea until 2020, the club have confirmed.
Ever since his move to Stamford Bridge in 2015 from Barcelona for a £21 million ($27m) fee, the Winger has become one of the most important attackers in the club’s arsenal, scoring 28 times in 131 appearances for the Blues.

While speaking to the club’s website, Pedro noted;
“It is very good for me, I am really happy here in the club, with my team-mates, the supporters and the club in general. It’s important for me to continue with Chelsea, I am comfortable here and want to win new titles and trophies. I want to help the team, score goals, and I repeat, I am really happy.”
Club director Marina Granovskaia added;
“We are very happy to secure Pedro’s services for another year. Since becoming a Chelsea player he has regularly demonstrated his quality on the field and we look forward to seeing him continue to flourish under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.”
Pedro recently turned 31, so he certainly falls under Chelsea’s over-30 rule when it comes to new contracts. He thus receives the customary one-year extension, a mutually beneficial arrangement that guarantees Pedro another year of solid income and Chelsea a transfer fee, should he decide to move on next summer.
