Chelsea star Pedro is set to be a free agent from July 1, as his contract with the club is set to expire.
It was expected that Pedro will sign a short-term deal that will keep him at the club until the end of the season, but reports claim Pedro is set to sit out the rest of Chelsea’s season after the forward agreed terms with Roma on a two-year deal.
According to the Athletic, Pedro is unwilling to sign any kind of new contract with Chelsea and doesn’t want to play for the club again.
Pedro fears that an injury picked up during the extra month could hamper his career with his new club.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will need every player at his disposal, and the Blues boss must now try to convince the Spaniard to make stay a bit longer at the club.
All temporary deals must be signed by next Tuesday, and Willian is another player that Lampard must convince to stay at the club on the short term at least.
Pedro has reportedly come to terms with Roma over a £56,000-a-week contract that will see him earn £2.9million year in Italy.
