The 34-year-old Spaniard will wear the number 9 shirt at the Biancocelesti, a number that often carries certain importance. Coach Maurizio Sarri was excited to be reunited with the former Chelsea man.

Pedro is the first player since Carlo Perrone to directly transfer between the two rival clubs. This occurred 40 years ago back in 1981.

Last season he made 40 appearances in all competitions for the Giallorossi, scoring 6 goals and providing 7 assists.
