Pepe will not join Paris Saint-Germain - latest reports of 'Marca' suggest.
The Portuguese, whose contract with Real Madrid has just expired, was in fact one step from moving to the French capital. The media even reported that the experienced defender had agreed with PSG. There were also reports that the 34-year-old had already undergone all the necessary medical tests.
Pepe's moving to Paris is unlikely to happen. Unai Emery wanted to bring him to his team, but there were complications with the length of the contract.
Due to this situation, Pepe decides to relocate to Beşiktaş. The club from Istanbul has long struggled for his acquisition, remaining a bit in the shadow of PSG. It is true that the Turks are not able to beat the Parisian financially, but they are able to make regular appearances. What is important - also in the Champions League. The 34-year-old is expected to appear in Istanbul soon.
Pepe has been in Real since 2007. In total he played in 334 matches (15 goals and 19 assists) for them. After three championship and two cups of Spain, as well as three cups for winning the Champions League, he is leaving Madrid.
