Real Madrid are trying to finish all the renewals that have left. Los Blancos don’t want to reach 2017 with pending renewals of the players that finish contract. Carvajal, Isco and Pepe are the next players to decide their future with Los Blancos. Real Madrid have already renew Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Tony Kroos and Luka Modric.
The renewal that most worries Real Madrid is the one of Pepe (33 years old). The full back contract ends on June and when everything seemed that the club and the player were going to close a deal, the latest contracts have not finished as expected, so the the Portuguese defense continues without closing the pact with Los Blancos.
The full back contract is finishing, and his idea is to continue because he has been at Madrid since 2007. Real Madrid offered him a contract to renew year to year but that proposal did not convince Pepe, who wants a contract of two years without having to be aware if he will continue or no the first year.
Several teams have been interested in Real Madrid’s full back. Different Premier League’s clubs always have been aware of all Portuguese defender movements. Manchester City, with Pellegrini on the bench, have always been the most interested. Mourinho also wants to sign Pepe with the objective of improve Manchester United defense.There are several clubs interested and with the contract that expires on June Pepe’s value rises.
Pepe and Real Madrid have a very good relationship but now a days they have not reach any agreement. The Portuguese is a great full back and he has improved with the pass of the years. We saw this summer that he is physically 100%. He played a high level with his national team, winning the last Euro Cup of France and being a Portugal key player.
