Chelsea forward Pedro has signed a one year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2020 it has been announced today.
Pedro arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2015 after he shunned a move to join Manchester United, and immediately started to make an impression by scoring on his debut.
However the arrival of Antonio Conte saw Pedro thrust into a more prominent role, scoring 9 goals and providing 9 assists on the way to re-claiming the title.
His opportunities dwindled once again last season as Conte tweaked his formation, but has shown signs in pre-season that he could thrive under new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.
“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,” Pedro told the official Chelsea website.
“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.”
