It is already known that Spanish player Pedro Rodriguez won’t remain in Chelsea. After announcing his departure, he has been linked with several clubs around Europe. However, according to the newspaper “Daily Mail”, the striker has already made his choice. It seems that Pedro will leave Chelsea to play for Roma.
On the publication made by the British website, playing for the Italian club is a priority for Pedro. And this could be the player’s last step in professional football, once he is already 32 years old. And Roma could be the ideal place for the Spanish to spend the last years of his victorious career.
However, the Roman club is not the only one interested in the athlete. There are other major European clubs that would like to have him on their squad. In Spain, Sevilla, Valencia, and Real Betis showed interested. And Juventus, also from Italy, also got in touch to try to sign with the player.
Close to turning 33, Pedro has an amazing track record in European and world football. He was an idol in Barcelona and won three Champions League titles with the Catalan club, in addition to impressive 5 La Liga trophies. After losing space in the squad he moved to Chelsea. In Londo, he played more than 200 matches and won 3 titles, including a Premier League.
For the Spanish national team, the player was part of the Champion squad in the 2010 World Cup, in South Africa. He is one of Vincente Del Bosque’s confidence man and showed the fans that he could replace Fernando Torres just fine.
Now, it is necessary for him to give a new step in his career and maybe the best is actually going to Roma. New teammates, a new league, a new country… It would be very good for him at the end of his career. And Roma would have one more good player in their squad.
