Pedro moves to clarify contract situation at Chelsea amid recent exit claims

Chelsea winger Pedro Rodriguez has moved to clarify reports that he was 'terminating' his contract with the club. 

The Spaniard's contract ends this summer, with reports indicating the club is not keen on giving him a new deal.

The former Barcelona man now says his comments during an interview back in Spain were misrepresented, and that he was not planning on moving.

"As many people know, my contract is up in May," Pedro said as quoted by the club's official website. 

"But I still haven't spoken to the club about whether or not it will be renewed and whether I'll carry on.

"I've seen loads of messages from Chelsea fans saying goodbye and thanking me for the time I've spent here, which I appreciate, but I'd like to tell all the fans simply that my current contract is coming to an end but I still have to talk to the club.

"I don't know whether I'll keep playing here or not. That conversation is still to come. But I have not signed for any other club. I belong to Chelsea. I have a contract. My wish is to be able to stay here but obviously we don't know what will happen. I have to speak to the club and let's see what happens," he added.

The winger is currently in his country helping the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic through his foundation.

"We are working together with a lot of hospitals, not just in the Canary Islands, but also in Madrid, Barcelona and other parts of Spain," he further revealed. 

Pedro joined Chelsea in 2015 and has gone on to win the Premier League, Europa League, and the FA Cup.
