Several Premier League clubs are reported to be interested in signing him, but according to legendary coach Fabio Capello the future of Pepe has already been decided, and it won’t be in England.
Pepe to PSG? It’s done 100%
the Italian told Sky Sport, adding
they met at a hotel in Cardiff.
The contract of the Portuguese defender at Real Madrid expires on the last day of June, and after being offered just an one-year extension, while he was hoping for two, he decided to decline the chance to stay at Santiago Bernabeu.
Premier League clubs are reported to have approached him, but seems like Capello has… inside information, and no doubt that Pepe will be a PSG player the 1st of July.
Born in Maceió, Brazil, Pepe spent the last ten seasons at Real Madrid, winning three La Liga titles, lifting the Copa del Rey trophy three times as well, and, maybe most important of all, winning the Champions League as many times, the last one just a few days ago, in Cardiff.
As for Capello, he hasn’t worked in over two years, after living his post at the national team of Russia. He hasn’t retired though, and could make a surprise comeback, if he receives a tempting enough offer.
