Frank Lampard, Chelsea boss, has said he does not want Pedro to leave the club in January.
The idea of moving back to his former club Barcelona has been in the player’s mind while MLS clubs New York City FC and Inter Miami are also monitoring his situation.
Pedro has made just 11 appearances this season and is in the final six months of his Blues contract.
However, Lampard is keen to keep the 32-year-old, especially with injury concerns around Christian Pulisic.
“He is part of my plans, Lampard told reporters at Cobham Training Centre.
‘’I started the season and he was in my team, and then, unfortunately, he got injured at Norwich before the game, and I had to make a change. Then he was out for a while, and I do have competition in that area.
“He has had bits here and there, I know he wants more games, I get that.
But he certainly has something that he can contribute here with his experience and his ability to break lines and run behind people and maybe get those goals in and around the box.
“He is here, I know his contract is up at the end of the season but I am not even looking that far ahead.
‘’He is here, he is part of the squad and I need everybody because football can change very quickly.
‘’There can be a period of games where you are on the bench, out of the squad, something changes an that is the moment that you have to come in and produce.

“I have got no winners in this game, I want the club to be the winner. People come in and do well, they stay in the team.”
