It looks like Pepe is not going to continue with Real Madrid next season because his contract finishes on June and Real Madrid are not going to renew the Portuguese full back. Pepe has received several offers from different European clubs and China but he wants to end his career playing in a competitive league as Serie A. Inter Milan are very interested in his services and according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Portuguese full back has accepted the offer from the Italian side and next season it seems that he will play at Giuseppe Meazza. He has received a very good offer from Inter having a salary of €4M per season with a duration of two seasons .
Pepe will leave for free as his contract finishes when the season ends and Real Madrid have not presented a succulent offer to maintain him at least for one season more. The Portuguese defender has waited several months with the aim of receiving a good offer from Real Madrid, but the meeting between Piero Ausilio and Jorge Mendes in Monte Carlo has cleared the doubts of the defender who arrived to Real Madrid in 2007 for an amount of €30M.
The agreement will be fully closed when Inter Milan’s owner, Zhang Jindong, gives the approval to the deal. No surprise is expected as the Italian side intention is to sign players with a lot of experience with the aim of being once again a powerful teeam of Europe and Pepe is a perfect example of what Inter Milan want for next season.
Pepe will leave Real Madrid without saying goodbye to the Santiago Bernabéu’s supporters in an official match because Zinedine Zidane decided to let him out of the list for the game against Sevilla because he is still injured from his ribs.
