Chelsea forward Pedro has revealed he has been receiving "many offers" from other clubs in Europe. The Spanish winger, who moved to the Premier League from LaLiga club Barcelona in 2015, is waiting to see if the west London Blues will hand him a new contract beyond the end of the season. "I have to talk to the club, I have a contract until June 30th," the ex-Barca star told El Larguero radio station. "I'm open to hearing other offers. I don't know [about Real Betis interest], a meeting with Chelsea is pending. "The coronavirus situation affected everything, so at the moment we are waiting for a meeting with Chelsea.

I’m waiting for the meeting with the club, but I am also open to listening to other offers. "The priority right now is completing my contract, then we’ll see what happens. I have offers from many places and I’ll evaluate what to do next. The truth is, I don’t know what’s going to happen." With Pedro’s deal at Stamford Bridge set to expire at the end of June, he has been linked with David Beckham's Inter Miami in America, however, former Blues central midfielder Craig Burley believes the 32-year-old will be perfect for the MLS.

Speaking on ESPN FC, Burley said: "I think he's good enough to play at a reasonable level, wherever that may be. At the end of the day, Chelsea are looking for younger players. "They've got a number of players they can select in similar positions [to Pedro].

"The other side of the coin is that he's had a pretty lucky career with injuries, especially recently unless my memory serves me wrong. "He still looks very fit and nimble and fast, which is a big attribute of his. "When you look at Pedro, you don't look at someone who has a bad attitude, you see someone who works hard and is a team player. "When you put all those things together, he would be a very good signing for someone in Major League Soccer. "Although he's turning 33, he's still got a lot to offer, and he's a very hard-working player."
