Pedro Rodriguez spent five amazing years at the Stamford Bridge winning three major titles after playing 206 games in the colours of the Blues.
He has announced his final departure at the club after his contract expired following Chelsea’s exit in the UEFA Champions League as they were knocked out in the second round.
The winger reportedly agreed to a mega deal to join Italian giant Roma after he successfully helped Chelsea finish in the top four of the Premier League at the just concluded season.
Pedro wrote: "After five wonderful years my stage at Chelsea FC comes to an end.
"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.
"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!!!"
Recall that the Spanish international joined the Premier League club in 2015 following a deal worth £21.25million.
Pedro was part of the Chelsea team that won the Premier League under Antonio Conte in 2017, the FA Cup the following season under the same boss and then the Europa League last year with Maurizio Sarri in charge.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Man United youngster Tahith Chong could be on his way out of the club to continue his development in the German Bundesliga.
The winger came through the ranks at United before making his breakthrough into the senior team in 2018.
However, two years later, Chong has failed to establish himself as a first team regular at the Theatre of Dreams.
He has endured limited game timethis season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but was part of the Red Devils squad that beat LASK 2-1 in a Europa League tie on Wednesday night, August 5.
