PEDRO paid Chelsea an emotional farewell – as Cesc Fabregas took all the credit for bringing him to the club.
The Spanish winger’s exit was confirmed after Chelsea beat Wolves 2-0 thanks to goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud.

Pedro, 32, joined Chelsea from Barcelona in 2015 and leaves having added the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League to his glittering CV.
He posted a series of photos after his final game, which included celebrations in the changing room.
Pedro captioned the photo: “My last game at Stamford Bridge.
“Thanks to every fan for your support through this years, to the club for giving me the chance of being a Blue and to my team-mates.
“You’ll be in my heart forever. Now let’s fight for FA Cup trophy!!! BIG BLUE FAMILY.”
But former Chelsea star Fabregas replied: “What a career you had with the Blues.
What a career you had with the blues. Thank god you listened, trusted me and landed at the right place… 😉👏🏻🤗 https://t.co/ThwZrpepDs
“Thank god you listened, trusted me and landed at the right place.”
Boss Frank Lampard said after the game: “Pedro has played his last game for the club. The lads have just pretty much serenaded him in the changing room and rightly so because of the career he has had generally and for this club.
“It was his last Premier League game, but the impact he has had here is huge.
“I want to say a big thanks to Peds and wish him well as he goes forward.
“He is here for the remainder of games, but a big player of the club leaves and the spirit of the club I saw afterwards was pretty special.”
Pedro leaves having scored 43 goals in 204 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea.
He will now join Roma in Serie A.
