Pedro ready for Roma adventure

Pedro Rodriguez confirmed his Chelsea departure via social media and is expected to sign for Roma next week.

The winger’s contract ran down after five years at Stamford Bridge, but the free agent had already agreed a deal with the Giallorossi weeks ago.

Pedro had surgery this week after dislocating his shoulder during the FA Cup Final.

“After five wonderful years my stage at Chelsea FC comes to an end,” wrote the 33-year-old on his official website and social media profiles.

“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. New challenges and triumphs will come for sure.

“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. Come on Blues!!!”
