Pedro joined Chelsea in the summer of 2015 from Barcelona for a figure in the region of £20 million. The Spain international had enjoyed a fine spell with the Catalan giants, winning three Champions League crowns and lifting five La Liga titles in his time at the Camp Nou.
Having been an integral part of Barcelona’s first team for several years, enjoying unprecedented success at club level, he went straight into the starting XI at Stamford Bridge. After a bright start to life in the Premier League, Pedro struggled to maintain his best form throughout the entirety of his debut season in England.
The 2016/17 campaign that followed though, under new boss Antonio Conte, saw the best come out of Pedro. He scored 13 goals in all competitions and played a key role in the side as the Blues marched to the league title.
Last time out, however, the 31-year-old’s form dipped once more and he struggled for starts in the Premier League. In his first three seasons in West London, Pedro has only produced one campaign that saw him consistently hit the performance levels he reached at Barcelona.
He has started this new season brightly and will be looking to enjoy a fine term under new manager Maurizio Sarri, though a suspicion remains that he should have contributed far more in his time with the Blues so far.
What do you think, Chelsea fans? Has Pedro been a successful signing for your club or do you feel underwhelmed by what the Spaniard has delivered since his arrival?
