On his new contract, Pedro said: “It is very good for me, I am really happy here in the club, with my team-mates, the supporters and the club in general.”

‘It’s important for me to continue with Chelsea, I am comfortable here and want to win new titles and trophies. I want to help the team, score goals, and I repeat, I am really happy.”

Club director Marina Granovskaia added: “We are very happy to secure Pedro’s services for another year. Since becoming a Chelsea player he has regularly demonstrated his quality on the field and we look forward to seeing him continue to flourish under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.”
