New York City FC linked to Chelsea’s Pedro Rodriguez
There is a new name linked to New York City FC. The Blues want to acquire Chelsea’s winger Pedro Rodriguez and the former Barcelona player seems to be one step away from Chelsea’s farewell. Pedro’s career needs no introduction. The Spaniard is practically a player who has won everything there is to win.
Pedro’s career at FC Barcelona
Pedro grew up in FC Barcelona, where he has played since childhood. With the blaugrana, Pedro won three UEFA Champions League titles and five La Liga championships. Pedro was one of the key players in the Guardiola era. Overall, in eight years at Barcelona he has made 321 appearances and 99 goals, winning 20 titles.
Move to Chelsea
In 2015 Pedro moved to Chelsea for 27 million euros. Pedro has scored 28 league goals and helped Chelsea win English Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League trophies since joining the Blues. Pedro was also a member of Spain’s 2010 World Cup-winning squad, as well as their 2012 European Championship-winning one.
The victories with Spain
In Pedro’s career, the victories with the Spanish national team also stand out. Indeed, Pedro was also a member of Spain’s 2010 World Cup-winning squad, as well as their 2012 European Championship-winning one.
Now Pedro has slipped back into the hierarchies of Frank Lampard, current Chelsea manager. Pedro is still tied to Chelsea for six months, so he could seriously consider joining MLS. Just a former New York player like Frank Lampard could push Pedro to choose City. In fact, Pedro also really likes Inter Miami who wants to build a great team right away to win.
It must be said that Pedro, in the past week, has not hidden his desire to return to FC Barcelona. A hypothesis that, very remote, rather, Pedro could return to Spain at the end of his playing career, probably to fill a managerial role at Barça. Much more likely that Pedro decides to move to MLS with New York City FC among the possible suitors.
