Pedro deal delights Chelsea boss Sarri
The Spanish forward has signed a one-year extension to keep him with the Blues until 2020, much to the delight of his new boss at Stamford Bridge
But Pedro agreed a one-year extension on Friday that will ensure he is committed to Chelsea through to the end of the 2019-20 Premier League season.
“I’m very happy about this,” Sarri told reporters. “Pedro is very important for us.
“He is a technical player. Very usable for me. And I think I’m really happy about the new contract.
“Pedro is a top player. It’s very important for us to keep the top players.”
Although both Chelsea and City are likely to be without some of their World Cup stars, Sarri said Cesc Fabregas could be available despite a knee injury sustained against former club Arsenal in the International Champions Cup.
“Not a serious injury,” Sarri said. “I don’t know if he will be able to play on Sunday. But it is nothing serious.
“But at this moment of the season it is very important the performance. We have to improve of course. So I hope to see from my team another step forward.”
