BREAKING: Pepe Completes His Move To Beşiktaş From Real Madrid

Pepe Completes Protracted Move From Real Madrid to Sign for Turkish Giants Besiktas

Pepe is now set to join Turkish giants Besiktas on a free deal, having arrived in Turkey for contract negotiations, as announced by the Super Lig champions. "He will be paid a total of €9.5 millions in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 season plus €4,000 per game he plays".

Pepe travelled to Istanbul to complete a medical with Besiktas this week.

"We don't need too many new transfers, rather we want to make some spot-on choices", Orman said, adding that they might transfer just one more player in the summer.

Pepe was also shortlisted by Paris Saint-Germain and Inter as the transfer window opened while he also acknowledged interests from Premier League clubs. He left Real after winning three La Liga titles, two King's Cup trophies and following three Champions League triumphs, although he missed this year's European Cup final victory against Juventus due to an injury.

Connecticut's gas prices lower for the holiday
AAA Northeast said Monday that the price of self-serve, regular dropped by two cents this week, averaging $2.18 per gallon. The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 40 cents, from a low of $2.09 to a high of $2.49.

Pepe has had a glittering career with Real, winning three La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey titles and winning the coveted UEFA Champions League thrice.

Pepe's time at Madrid will be considered a success, although a controversial incident in April 2009 in which he savagely kicked Getafe player Javi Casquero and was sent off will also be remembered.

And while supporters of the Istanbul club may have to wait for official confirmation of the switch, Besiktas whetted their appetites with a photo of Pepe decked in the side's black and white shirt.
