Three players who might have played their last game for Chelsea
After four and a half years of trophies at West London, we may have witnessed the last of Pedro Rodriguez in a Chelsea shirt following his fine display against Nottingham Forest over the weekend.
The sublime sense of protracted finishing from surreal areas of the pitch alongside his pace are not his best friends anymore, but the man who's won it all still has plenty of willingness, ball retention and tactical awareness left in him. After all, he's more than just a forward; he's an enigma owning the capacity to lift dressing rooms with his winning mentality.
However, minutes have come few and far between for the Spanish legend, who has played just 310 minutes of league football all term long. His contract ends in the summer, and a host of PL and Spanish clubs would be vying to secure the 32-year-old's signature.
Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi are two for the future, while Mount has also been preferred down the flanks on occasions. Willian meanwhile, has become a lynchpin under Lampard, owing to his remarkable work rate, tactical intelligence and counter-attacking credentials.
Among potential suitors for Pedro, stand MLS and his former club Barcelona, for whom he could make a sensational return more as an influential figure than a player belonging to the progressive plans of the club.Published 08 Jan 2020, 14:12 IST
