​Roma have offered Chelsea outcast Pedro a contract, and look poised to sign the Spaniard for free when his Stamford Bridge deal expires this summer.

The World Cup winner has spent five seasons with the Blues since signing from Barcelona in 2015, lifting the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.

However, Pedro has seen his game time severely restricted under Frank Lampard, and has featured just nine times in the Premier League this season.


With his contract down to the final six months, the Spaniard has been able to talk to other clubs since January. Now, the Mirror report that Serie A giants Roma have offered him a deal worth close to £3m per year, while he's also attracted interest from MLS.

Speaking about his future to ​Cadena SER in March, Pedro said: "My contract is up, but that's not the most important thing right now.

"I haven't even thought about it. My future will be resolved in due course. The most important thing is for everyone to show solidarity.

"Whatever happens regarding my future will happen, but right now it's not important as we don't even know when we will return to training."

Pedro is one of four Chelsea players in the twilight stages of their careers whose contracts expire in the summer.

Willian, Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero's deals are all up on 30 June, and with the coronavirus throwing the sporting calendar into disarrey, Chelsea have put negotiations on hold.

The club are not prepared to make a decision on possible extensions until the situation with the Premier League season becomes clearer. Should the league resume, it will likely run past the quartet's contract expiry date.

Both Giroud and Caballero had been prepared to sign a one-year extension, while Willian was pushing for a new three-year deal, which the club are unlikely to agree to.

Chelsea are not prepared to offer the Brazilian anything longer than a two-year deal, with speculation linking him with a move to London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal, as well as PSG and Barcelona.
