Lazio winger Pedro confirmed that he was discussing the idea of a new contract with the club, but also noted that CD Tenerife were in talks over a possible deal.
The 35-year-old Spanish winger, who joined the club on a free transfer in April 2021 after leaving Roma on a free transfer, is set to leave Rome at the end of this season, when his current contract expires.
Lazio are keen to retain the 2010 World Cup winner and have already opened contract renewal talks, but progress has been slow and a departure in the summer is a genuine possibility.
Speaking to Spanish outlet Cadena Ser (via LazioNews24), Pedro first discussed his current position and what could happen in the future.
I’m in contact with Tenerife, we will definitely talk. The financial aspect is not a problem. As for the personal aspect, it’s complicated, it’s difficult to go there, to be away from your children.
It’s a complex situation. I’m also in negotiations with Lazio, who would like to offer me a contract renewal. We’ll figure it out in the end and make a decision that will be best for everyone.
The 35-year-old Lazio winger then commented on the unexpected nature of Tenerife’s interest.
It’s strange that during all this time they’ve never contacted me, it’s the first time we’ve spoken about it.
Who knows if I will be linked to the club in the future but I listen to them with great pleasure. I hope it can happen, but we’ll see what happens, everyone knows it’s complicated.
This season, Pedro has made 30 appearances across all competitions for Lazio, scoring five goals and providing five assists in that time.
