Real Madrid's Pepe Is Wanted By Premier League Quartet

Real Madrid's Pepe Is Wanted By Premier League Quartet

Real Madrid's Pepe is a wanted man.

According to reports in both Italy and Spain, the rough 'n' tough defender is being chased by a quartet of Premier League clubs as well as a money-rich Chinese Super League side.

The 33-year-old is out of contract at the Bernabeu in June and he's allowed to test the waters once the January transfer window reopens.

And talks of an extension have stalled, alerting clubs in Europe and the Far East including not one but FOUR English clubs.


But they'll have to fend off heavy competition from China, as reports in Spain suggest that the Portuguese already "has a foot and a half in China."

Despite that, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Spurs have all since expressed an interest in acquiring his services.

Not only is he attracting plenty of interest from England and China, Gazzetta dello Sport claim that AC Milan, Inter, Juventus, Napoli and AS Roma are also chasing his signature.


While a move to Italy or England will continue him plying his trade at the top level, a move to the Chinese revolution could potentially double his wages.

The Euro 2016 winner has been snubbed in favour of the younger and fresher Raphael Varane by manager Zinedine Zidane prompting the intense speculation.

China? England? Italy? Pepe isn't short of options.
