Pepe might be on his way to the Premier League. I repeat, one of the most controversial characters in world football has been strongly linked with a move to England and the shithousery radar is already off the charts.
Wolves are the club that have been rumoured to be interested in the former Real Madrid centre-back, who impressed for Portugal in the World Cup this summer.
Nuno Espírito Santo's side already have a host of Portuguese talent in their roster, including the imminent signing of Joao Moutinho, but surely the potential arrival of Pepe would be their biggest piece of business in the window.
According to the Express and Star, the newly promoted Premier League side are confident of sealing deals in the next few days, including another possible transfer in Gelson Martins, who would be available on a free transfer after leaving Sporting CP.
Some fans have already expressed their concern about a move for Pepe because of his age, but surely his valuable experience will be key if Wolves are to stay up.
I'm on the Express and Star now and there is a Wolves fan bemoaning the possibility of signing Pepe "are we running a seniors league?" He's forgotten the Roger Johnson era pretty quickly!- Mark Langdon (@marklangdon) July 23, 2018
Pepe won the Champions League on three occasions during his 10 year spell at Real Madrid, as well as making 334 appearances for the club. He also lifted the European Championship with Portugal in 2016 and is one appearance away from 100 caps for his country.
He would certainly bring personality and leadership to the Premier League, but he has been criticized in the past for his over-dramatic diving antics.
So, Wolves have reportedly agreed terms with João Moutinho. Perhaps not a big deal to many but Moutinho - alongside Pepe - has easily been Portugal's second best player in the last decade. Fabulous piece of business by the Premier League's new boys.- Marino Peixoto (@Marinovpeixoto) July 23, 2018
Wolves' tribe (soon to be army) of Portuguese players continues to grow. A phenomenally exciting prospect for Seleção fans the world over. We may well see it benefit the national team greatly, too.- Marino Peixoto (@Marinovpeixoto) July 23, 2018
It looks like Wolves are building something rather special ahead of the new campaign. They might even win Euro 2020 at this rate.
Can they avoid relegation this season?
