Pedro happy at Chelsea despite Atletico Madrid speculation

December 22, 2015

Chelsea forward Pedro insists he is happy at Stamford Bridge and is not looking to return to Spain.

Pedro joined the Blues from Barcelona for £21.4m in July but has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.

Atletico Madrid have been linked with the 28-year-old by weekly sports magazine Don Balon amid suggestions he is keen to return to La Liga following Jose Mourinho's sacking.

However, Pedro, who is just months into a four-year contract, has told the Evening Standard he is not unsettled and is looking forward to working under interim manager Guus Hiddink for the remainder of the season.

He said: "I'm happy here. This information that I'm not is false. I am very satisfied to be here in this club. 

"I am happy with the supporters and this team. Obviously the situation is not good but together it is possible for us to climb the table.

"Guus Hiddink is a very good coach and I am sure the club are confident about him. He spoke with me after the Sunderland game for a minute in Spanish and I had a good feeling.

"For me it was perfect. He was telling me is happy here and with the team."
