Report: Pedro signals Chelsea summer departure

Chelsea winger Pedro Rodriguez said he will not extend his contract at Stamford Bridge beyond this summer and talked about the global pandemic situation.

Pedro is in the final months of his contract at Chelsea, along with Willian, Olivier Giroud, Willy Caballero and Marco van Ginkel.

The Spaniard confirmed his Chelsea career is ending, but wanted to focus on a more important issue: the coronavirus outbreak.

In an interview with El Larguero on CADENA SER, the 32-year-old said: “I’m terminating my contract, but right now it’s not the most important thing, nor have I stopped to think about it.

From there on what has to do with my future will come, but right now it’s not the most important thing when you don’t even know when you’re going to train again.

He also revealed a saddening reality about his situation during the travel restrictions and lockdowns, saying: “I have not been able to travel either and see my children. I had a chance to be with them, and I could not travel.”

Recently, his Chelsea teammate Willian has been allowed to fly back to Brazil to be with his wife and children.

With as the uncertainties surrounding this season continue, there is a possibility we may not see these two in Chelsea shirts anymore.
