“Lewandowski has never complained to me, I finally congratulated him on his good season. I was satisfied with him and he was pleased with us.

“As always there are agents who talk too much, I do not know why. It is not the first time an agent has used the newspapers to say something wrong, that’s all. In a perfect world, agents do not talk.”

Speaking to Spanish radio Cadena Ser Chelsea striker Pedro admitted that, should the Blues lose Diego Costa in this transfer window, it will be a very big loss for the team.

“We will see what happens to Diego but we don’t know,” the ex Barcelona player said.

“He is obviously a very important player in attack for us. He has scored the majority of the goals for us this season.

“He is a player feared by defenders because he is fast. He scores with ease.

“Diego gives you an added strength and more so in this league, because he is strong, he scores and he has good physical condition.

“If eventually it is confirmed that he will not continue with us, it will be a very big loss for us.

“It’s early days but I hope as a player and friend that he can stay with us.”

Costa was reportedly involved in a training ground bust-up with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in January and was subsequently linked with Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian. However, Pedro believes too much was made of the incident, adding that Costa and Conte enjoy a “good” relationship.

“I don’t know what type of relationship they have but I think it’s a good one,” he said. “Diego has played everything, he has achieved all the goals that the coach set him. In the changing room and on the pitch, we haven’t seen anything strange between them.”
