Having won 20 trophies at Barcelona and a few more with Chelsea, Pedro is hoping to add Italian honors to his resume.

The World Cup, Champions League, La Liga, and Premier League winners is bringing his talents to the Eternal City and has signed a contract with AS Roma that runs through the 2022-23 season.

Once linked with Major League Soccer, Pedro’s future was linked to i Lupi during the pandemic and Tuesday’s announcement amounts to a cool but extremely poorly kept secret.

Pedro’s time at Chelsea ends with 43 goals and 28 assists in 206 matches, the 33-year-old adding to the 99 goals and 62 assists he posted in 321 appearances for Barcelona.

What can he do with Roma? I Lupi finished eight points off the Champions League places and will be back in the Europa League group stage this winter. They were led by Edin Dzeko with 16 goals and seven assists, and Lorenzo Pellegrini topped the helpers with nine assists.

Young Nicolo Zaniolo took another step after a promising rookie season and will surely benefit from the tutelage of Pedro.
