Pedro Rodriguez has confirmed his five-year stay with Chelsea has now come to an end in an emotional farewell post.

After five years at the club, Pedro has confirmed he would look elsewhere to continue his footballing adventure.

The Spanish attacker joined the Blues in a £21m deal from Barcelona in 2015.

Pedro signed a short-term extension to remain a Chelsea player until the season’s end. He will play in Italy next season as reports say he has agreed a two-year deal with Roma.

Pedro played only 18 games in total under Frank Lampard this term and ended his campaign with a shoulder injury in Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat.

He has now confirmed he is leaving the club.
