With the season set to restart later this month, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has one worry – Pedro.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are reportedly concerned Pedro may not agree to a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Pedro’s Chelsea deal expires on June 30 but with the season set to extend until July due to the break caused by the coronavirus, Chelsea had hoped Pedro will agree to a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Pedro is reportedly hesitating over penning fresh terms out of ‘solidarity’ with team-mate Willian.

A source from Chelsea told The Sun: “Pedro is ready to play on. He knows he is pretty much certain of leaving Chelsea at the end of this season.

“He wants to do the right thing by the club too after a long time there and see the season out. But equally, he does not want to be the first one who signs before his pals have done the same.

“And Willian’s situation is a bit different to his own. Willian is open to staying on at Stamford Bridge. Pedro is not keen to ‘break ranks’ and go it alone.”
