Portuguese defender Pepe will leave Real Madrid and sign a two-year deal with PSG as a free agent this summer, according to MARCA. The defender could not reach an agreement with Madrid as he wanted a two-year contract while Los Blancos only offered him one.

Pepe is 34 years old and signed for Real Madrid in the summer of 2007. He was an undisputed starter for the club ever since and his performances were nothing short of spectacular in a time when the club lacked reliable center-backs.

The Portuguese defender wasn't a relevant player during his last season with Madrid because of the injuries but he will be able to say that he conquered an historic La Liga-Champions League double.

Pepe has won three Champions League titles, two Ligas, two Copas del Rey, two FIFA Club World Cups and two Spanish Supercups with Real Madrid, completing a very successful career.
