Pedro has had a much better finish to his season in recent months. Having signed for Chelsea for £21m from Barcelona, he has spoken of how he has no regrets about signing for us and how settled he has become here.
I really rate Pedro and stand by the fact that he has had a much better end to the season. Why is that the case? It's down to a regular run of games and his confidence which I really hope he carries over to next season.
We had all seen just how effective he could be when he played at Barcelona and we have begun to see signs of that here in recent weeks. To finish with eight goals is a good start because let's not forget that the general consensus of opinion is that it takes players from foreign countries who are not used to the Premier League pace and power at least a season to settle into it (Eden Hazard for example).
After personally finishing the season on a high and having been called up the provisional Spanish squad for the Euros this summer, Pedro has spoken of his decision to come to Chelsea and said:
'I am already looking forward to next season in terms of what we can achieve and putting the club back where it should be.
Of course when you move away from your city there are certain things you will miss but, generally speaking, I am settled in this country.
I am really happy here and have no regrets about the decision I made to join Chelsea.
Is the best still to come from me? Absolutely. I always keep faith in myself and my abilities.
I'm sure next season will be a great one for me and the club. I'm really looking forward to fighting for the Premier League, which will be a dream for me.'
Under the guidance of Antonio Conte, Pedro could really become a major influence in this League and one of the first names on our team sheet next season. He has it all, ability, pace, skill and as we have seen a real eye for goals. People talk of Juan Cuadrado but I would take Pedro over him any day of the week.
It's important that we keep hold of our best players and those who can really make a difference for the new manager next season. Pedro IS one of those players and by the sounds of it, is more determined than ever to put Chelsea back where they need to be!
