The Argentine bid his friend farewell after confirmation that the Spaniard would be ending his 11-year association with Barcelona
Barcelona star Lionel Messi has wished Pedro all the best at Chelsea following the completion of the winger’s €30 million transfer.
The 28-year-old ended a month-long transfer saga that saw him linked heavily with Manchester United only for Jose Mourinho’s Blues to swoop in late to seal a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
Messi, who has spent 11 years alongside Pedro on Barcelona’s books, reminded his Facebook followers of the fond times he has spent with the Spaniard and wished him well in the Premier League.
“We’ve shared really great moments in together over the years,” the Argentine forward wrote on his official page. “Good luck in the new chapter of your life, Pedro!”
Han sido años llenos de muy lindos momentos juntos… ¡Mucha suerte en tu nueva etapa Pedro!We’ve shared really great moments together over the years. Good luck in this new chapter of your life, Pedro!- LIO

Pedro has won three Champions Leagues, five Liga titles and three Copa del Rey trophies since first linking up with the Catalans’ senior squad in 2008.
The winger will go down in Camp Nou folklore for opening the scoring in their fourth European title in 2010-11, when they defeated Manchester United 3-1 at Wembley.
More recently, Pedro scored the winning, extra-time goal in Barca’s 5-4 Uefa Super Cup triumph.
