    Roma complete Pedro signing

    The club are delighted to announce the signing of World Cup winner Pedro Rodriguez.

    The Spanish forward, 33, joins the club on a three-year contract that runs until 30 June 2023.

    “I am delighted to be here at Roma,” Pedro said. “I’m excited for this challenge and to compete to achieve our targets over the coming seasons.

    “I want to thank the fans for the welcome they’ve given me. I hope to make them happy.”

    The former Barcelona and Chelsea forward arrives in the Italian capital having won 25 major trophies in his career to date – including the Champions League, Europa League, Premier League and La Liga.

    At international level he was part of the Spain squad that won the World Cup in 2010 and European Championship in 2012.

    In total he has made 65 appearances for his country, scoring 17 goals.

    “It’s a privilege for us to be able to welcome a player of Pedro’s quality to the Roma family,” said club CEO Guido Fienga.

    “The hope we have, for both him and for us, is that he can continue to add to his extraordinary list of achievements with AS Roma.”

    The Tenerife-born winger spent the last five seasons at Chelsea, helping the club to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League during that span.

    His contract with the Blues expired earlier this summer.

    Pedro began his senior career at Barcelona, where he won the treble twice and the Champions League on three occasions – including scoring in the final of the 2011 competition.

    He is the club’s first signing of the summer.

    The new Serie A season is scheduled to get underway on September 19.
