Will Pepe leave Real Madrid for Arsenal?

Posted on | February 9, 2011 | No Comments

Pepe is one of the most wanted Real Madrid players because the contract renewal negotiations were not completed successfully.



Despite being undoubtedly Real Madrid first choice for central defender, Pepe is one of the lowest earners at Bernabeu with an annual salary of €1.8 millions.

The 27 years old defender has one more year of his contract at Real Madrid. Chelsea and Man City already expressed their interest  on the player but probably will wait to see how negotiations will end before submitting a binding offer.

However there are reports from England that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is willing to offer €30 millions for the Portuguese star. It looks like Wenger is tired of defensive mistakes especially after Newcastle game when Arsenal were equalized after leading with 4-0.

Jose Mourinho asked the Real Madrid board to reach an agreement with the player as soon as possible because he considers Pepe a key member of his team.

Pepe started his professional career at Maritimo. After only 3 years joined Porto where he played another 3 seasons before moving to Real Madrid.
