Two years ago in the summer, Pedro moved from Rome to Lazio, rewriting the history that two bitter rivals in the same city had no direct player transactions for 40 years. Pedro’s transfer to Lazio coincided with the arrival of madman Mourinho in Rome. At that time, Pedro had a three-year contract with Rome, and he was able to cancel the contract successfully, largely because Mourinho did not intend to include Pedro in his lineup.
After joining Lazio, Pedro played 40 times in two consecutive seasons and helped the team win the Europa League. After the end of this season, his contract with Lazio officially expired. At that time, he will be 36 years old. It is difficult for players of this age to stay in the five major leagues. Of course, Pedro doesn’t worry about leaving home. After all, others have played in Barcelona and won three Champions League titles and five La Liga titles.
According to the Italian Evening Post, in March this year, Pedro received an offer from the Japanese J-League team, and Kobe Victory Ship and Yokohama Sailors were competing for the former Barcelona main midfielder. In addition, at the beginning of May, a Saudi League team also came to Italy to meet Pedro’s agent team. If the player himself can’t find a suitable job in Europe, the Saudi League always welcomes him to join.
At present, the outside world only knows that Pedro’s contract with Lazio is about to expire, but the season is not over yet, and Pedro may stay in Europe until the end of the summer window. According to Lazio’s team reporter, on the one hand, Pedro himself has not made up his mind to play in Asia, on the other hand, Lazio also wants to renew his contract, and the club’s top management is discussing with Pedro’s agent the appropriate salary plan.
Lazio is currently ranked fourth in Serie A and is likely to return to the Champions League after two years. Pedro has played for Barcelona and Chelsea for many years and has rich experience in the Champions League, which is why Lazio wants to renew his contract. In the past two years, Pedro has been an indispensable member of Lazio’s midfield. Instead of spending money on new players, it is better to use experienced acquaintances. Therefore, Lazio must negotiate a contract renewal with Pedro before the summer window.
