Pedro will sign a two-year deal with Roma with the option of another, ending his five-year stay at Chelsea.
The 32-year-old joined the Blues from Barcelona in the summer of 2015 for an initial £19 million and has featured in 201 games across all competitions, scoring 43 goals.
Pedro won the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League in 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively with Chelsea, playing key roles in every of those victories.
The Stamford Bridge outfit have landed RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner and brought in Hakim Ziyech from Ajax for £45 million and £37 million respectively, and it’s safe to say they won’t miss the former Barcelona ace.
