Felipe Augusto de Almeida Monteiro is linked with potential move to Real Madrid - says 'AS'.
Current European champion will probably not extend the contract of Portuguese defender and it expires in June. That means he will leave The Blancos after ten years of playing in their kits. His next step is going to be Chinese Super League.
Local press claims that Felipe from FC Porto will be 'The Next Pepe'. Sources from Madrid inform that player's manager Giuliano Bertolucci has already spoken with Real Madrid executives about the potential transfer of the 27-year-old.
Felipe, who joined the Dragões from Brazilian top flight team Corinthians in the summer, has a €50 million release clause inserted into his contract. He managed to play 37 games this season, scoring three goals and providing one assist.
It was FC Porto where Pepe played before joining Real Madrid in 2007.
