EPL: Willian, Pedro Extend Chelsea Contracts

Brazilian winger, Willian and Spanish playmaker, Pedro have extended their contract with English Premier League side, Chelsea, until the end of the season.

The duo had the option to leave Stamford on June 30 after their original deal with the club expired.

The Chelsea wingers will help Frank Lampard team secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League until the Premier League is concluded in July

Chelsea in a statement released on Tuesday said, “As a result of the global pandemic and the subsequently delayed conclusion to the campaign, Premier League clubs unanimously agreed to be allowed to enter into short-term contract extensions with players whose deals were due to expire at the end of this month.”

“Willian and Pedro were among those affected, and they and the club have now mutually agreed to extend contracts until the finale of the current season.”

“It means they will be available for our remaining Premier League fixtures in 2019/20, as well as any future involvement in the FA Cup and Champions League.”

The Blues are currently fourth on the league table and will clash with Manchester City on Thursday.

They also have an FA Cup quarter-final date with Leicester on Sunday and are still in the Champions League, after been defeated 3-0 by Bayern Munich in the first leg of the round of 16.
