Chelsea winger Pedro Rodriguez is in the final year of his contract, having joined Chelsea from Barcelona for £21 million in 2015.

The 32-year-old had revealed in an interview that he will terminate his contract with the club this summer but admits his future is not a priority amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

Pedro said as reported previously in an interview: “I’m terminating my contract, but right now it’s not the most important thing, nor have I stopped to think about it.”

However, speaking to the club’s official website, Pedro has now explained that what he said to media was actually misinterpreted.

“As many people know, my contract is up in May,” he corrected, “but I still haven’t spoken to the club about whether or not it will be renewed and whether I’ll carry on.

“I’ve seen loads of messages from Chelsea fans saying goodbye and thanking me for the time I’ve spent here, which I appreciate, but I’d like to tell all the fans simply that my current contract is coming to an end but I still have to talk to the club.

“I don’t know whether I’ll keep playing here or not. That conversation is still to come. But I have not signed for any other club. I belong to Chelsea. I have a contract. My wish is to be able to stay here but obviously we don’t know what will happen. I have to speak to the club and let’s see what happens.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
