Pepe to join PSG on a free
Three-time Champions League winner Pepe will reportedly seal a Bosman move to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this month.
The Portuguese footballer was left out of the matchday for the Champions League final against Juventus last weekend, which Real won by a 4-1 scoreline.
Despite this, the 34-year-old joined in the celebration with his fellow teammates after the club achieved a new feat of having retained the European crown.
According to Marca, the Euro 2016 winner was on the cusp of securing a move to Inter Milan before Les Parisiens plotted a late raid for his signature.
Super agent Jorge Mendes had travelled to the city of Cardiff, and he helped the player negotiate a two-year deal with the Ligue 1 club.
Pepe is now guaranteed football at the highest level until the age of 36, and he is said to have snubbed interest from the Chinese Super League, in particular, to finalise the deal.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was also keen on a reunion with his former Los Blancos player, but a deal never materialised.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are still assessing the future of Brazilian defender Marquinhos, who could join one of Manchester United and Barcelona during the summer transfer window.
