Portuguese defender Pepe joins Turkish champions Beşiktaş after ten good years at Santiago Bernabeu, the Turkish champions announced on Tuesday.
The Portuguese, who has represented Los Blancos for a decade, failed to concur another contract agreement with the club and was tipped to sign for PSG.
The 34-year-old even ventured to have a medical with the Ligue 1 giants, as indicated by Marca, but the deal failed to work out.
As indicated by reports in Turkey, the Portuguese defender has signed on a three-year deal and will earn around €3.25million per season.
Pepe made 229 caps for Real Madrid scoring 13 goals he is viewed as one of the best defenders in the modern day football. He is broadly known for his intense tackles and play acting, he picked up his ubiquity in his second season in Spain for his scandalous kicking out at Getafe’s Javier
Casquero in the wake of fouling him and punching Juan Albin in a league encounter in April 2009, earning a 10-game ban, and later apologised and said he had “lost control”.
He leaves Real after winning three La Liga titles, two King’s Cup trophies and three Champions League triumphs, despite the fact that he missed the 2016/17 Champions League final against the Old Lady
He will be affectionately remembered by the Madrid club’s fans for his vivacious performances and steady association with Sergio Ramos.
