Pepe’s decision of joining Besiktas surprises all

Sports News, July 5:- Real Madrid legend Pepe has completed a surprise move to Turkish giants Besiktas. The Portuguese centre-back had a hugely successful spell at Santiago Bernabeu, but the 34-year-old’s contract was not renewed and he became a free agent on July 1st. The veteran centre-back was heavily linked with a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain and even had a medical with the Ligue 1 giants.

However, the 34-year-old changed his mind and joined Besiktas on a free transfer. As of now, no details about the length of Pepe’s contract have been revealed.

The Turkish champions will be hoping that Pepe continues his habit of winning major trophies at Istanbul.

Pepe was a rock at the heart of the defence for Real Madrid. Often putting in last ditch tackles and goal-saving blocks, the Portuguese defender’s big game experience and tactical nous will definitely be missed by Zidane.
