The storm brought to the world by the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and the current climate makes it difficult for many of us to envision what may be next. Some of the world’s top footballers, especially those with contracts expiring at the end of the 2019-20 season, face the same issue.

Veteran Chelsea winger Pedro is one of these players, and speculation about where his career might take him next is ongoing. But, like many others, he himself has no idea what’s going to happen.

“I have to talk to the club, I have a contract until June 30. I’m open to hearing other offers. [...] The priority right now is completing my contract, then we’ll see what happens.

“I don’t know, I really don’t know. I have offers from many places and I’ll evaluate what to do next. The truth is, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

The last club linked to Pedro were Real Betis, opening the doors for a return to Spain. However, he cannot make any decisions on his future until he has spoken with Chelsea, which would seem to imply that there’s a chance that he might yet be given a new contract extension?

“Betis? I don’t know, a meeting with Chelsea is pending. The coronavirus situation affected everything, so at the moment we are waiting for a meeting with Chelsea.

“I know that the contract is coming to an end, but we have not yet sat down to discuss whether to renew and continue here or not. I’m waiting for the meeting with the club, but am also open to listening to other offers.”

And so we wait. All of us.
