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.
“After five wonderful years my stage at Chelsea FC comes to an end,” Pedro wrote on Instagram.
“Thanks a lot to the club’s board, to the coaches and teammates I’ve had, and of course to the fans: thank you for the experience of being a member of your big family. I’ve been very happy here, you’ve made me feel like home.”
“It’s been a pleasure and an honour to play for this club and win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League titles, as well as competing in one of the world’s best football leagues. I made the right choice, I take with me wonderful and unforgettable memories.” Pedro added.
“I say farewell very pleased with this stage of my career, and I’m also very excited with the next to begin. Thanks and good luck for the future.”
Since his Chelsea debut in 2015, Pedro scored 43 goals in 201 games, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and the Europa League in that time.
