Veteran defender Pepe will wear a Porto uniform next season.

On the 23rd (local time), Porto announced the extension of the contract with Pepe through official channels. There were reports that he would sign a two-year renewal contract earlier, but reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European football transfer market, said that Pepe’s new contract is until June next year.

After making his professional debut at Portuguese club Mari Timu,온라인카지노 Pepe moved to Portuguese club Porto in the summer of 2004 and built an international reputation before joining Real Madrid in 2007. During his 10 seasons at Real Madrid, he became one of the best defenders in the world. During this time, he won the Spanish La Liga three times and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) three times.

He also played for the Portuguese national team for a long time. If Cristiano Ronaldo, who was also his teammate at Real Madrid, led Portugal’s attack, Pepe was the center of defense. Pepe made 133 appearances, starting with his A-match debut against Finland in 2007. He also played an active part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Pepe, who left Real Madrid in the summer of 2017 and moved to Turkiye Super League Besiktas, returned to Porto through the winter transfer window in January 2019. Since he was already 36 years old at the time of his transfer, it seemed that he would slowly finish his career as a player in his home team, but he is still active as a key defender even at the age of 40. This season, he played in 19 Portuguese Prime La Liga matches and 4 UEFA Champions League (UCL) matches. Except for his injury period, he has been consistently playing, mostly starting.
