We have a new transfer saga this summer following Cristiano Ronaldo sensationally telling Real Madrid that he wants to leave, and Pepe has urged him to follow through on his demands while naming the club he should join.
The Portuguese international is currently on international duty as he vies for another major international honour after claiming the European Championships last summer.
But while contesting for the Confederation Cup, Ronaldo has found himself subject to intense transfer speculation. The 32-year-old has allegedly defrauded Spanish authorities of €14.7 million for three years between 2011 and 2014 by knowingly using a 'business structure' to hide how much he was making from image rights.

Ronaldo feels the club have failed to back and support him, even claiming he 'doesn't feel protected by Madrid.' As a result, he's asked to leave the Spanish capital.
Europe's elite have been put on alert. Well, the sides that can actually afford his services. Manchester United, AC Milan and Paris-Saint German have been linked with a move.
And the departing Pepe has urged him to leave Real Madrid while saying he should turn down the chance to reunite with the Old Trafford faithfuls in favour of a move to the Ligue 1 giants.

Spanish outlet Marca claim his Portuguese teammate is hoping he can convince Ronaldo to follow him to Paris.
"The club has not defended you in conditions," Pepe reportedly said. "Let's go together to PSG."
The defender is out of contract at the Bernabeu and is expected to leave for PSG in a free transfer.
