Chelsea attacker agrees to join Serie A giants
Chelsea forward Pedro has agreed to join AS Roma when his contract with the west London club expires at the end of the campaign.
The Spaniard was initially fancied to leave the Blues on June 30, but the club decided to extend his stay until the conclusion of the season.
Pedro has been constantly linked with a move to Roma in recent months and Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that he has signed a pre-contract.
The former Barcelona man is expected to join them on a two-year deal and the move is likely to be made official by Roma in the coming weeks.
Pedro was an unused substitute for the Blues as they secured a 2-1 comeback win over Aston Villa in the Premier League on the road last weekend.
It will be interesting to see whether manager Frank Lampard counts on his experience when the Blues host Manchester City in tonight's encounter.
Pedro has seen limited playing time over the course of the current campaign. He has made only eight starts in the Premier League for the Blues.
