Chelsea forward Pedro has signed a one-year contract to extend his contract until 2020.

The 31-year-old Spaniard moved to Chelsea in 2015, leaving Barcelona for a £21 million ($27m) fee.

“It is very good for me, I am really happy here in the club, with my teammates, the supporters and the club in general,” Pedro told Chelsea’s official 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.”

Pedro has so far played in 131 games for Chelsea, scoring 28 goals.

While Pedro has committed his future, doubts persist over the likes of N’Golo Kante, Eden Hazard and Willian.

Chelsea will take on Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
