Pedro Rodriguez sent a birthday message to his Chelsea “brother” Cesc Fabregas after the midfielder turned 30 on Thursday.

The Spain international is on the brink of winning his second Premier League title with Chelsea as Antonio Conte’s close in on the top-flight crown after an impressive season.

Fabregas moved to Chelsea from Barcelona in a £27m deal in 2014 before his compatriot Pedro completed a big-money switch to the west London side in the 2015 summer transfer window.

Pedro has played rather more minutes than Fabregas in the 2016-17 campaign after the winger scored his eighth goal in a 3-0 win against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The World Cup winner posted the above selfie on his Instagram page and wrote the following message for Fabregas:

“Happy birthday brother @cescf4bregas 👏🏻🔝🎂🍾!!”

Fabregas has still contributed four goals and nine assists in 25 games in the Premier League this term, although 15 of those appearances have come from the bench.

Chelsea will host Middlesbrough in their next Premier League game at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
