Portugal Star Pepe Dumps Real Madrid, Joins new Club

BREAKING: Pepe signs for Turkish giants Besiktas

Besiktas have announced that former Real Madrid defender has put pen to paper on a two-year deal. 

The Portugal international joins the Turkish club on a free transfer after a decade at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Brazil born player played over 300 games for Los Blancos helping Madrid to a Liga and Champions League double in his final campaign. 

Besiktas president Fikret Orman said that the Portugal international would add leadership to the club's backline as they aim to retain the Super Lig crown they won last season. Orman added: "We have added a very important player with a career and personality that we like." 

Pepe won three league titles, as many Champions League crowns and two Club World Cup medals at Madrid.
