The Portugues centre-back looks to be on his way out of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho also keen on bringing his compatriot to the Premier League.

Fast approaching 32 years of age, Madrid are yet to offer the experienced defender a new contract. This has alerted a host of clubs to his possible availability, with Manchester United and domestic rivals Manchester City thought to be leading the race for his signature.

Pepe still reportedly has around two years remaining on his current deal, so Los Blancos are not in a position where they will be forced to cash in on him.

A sizeable bid could easily convince them to part ways with the combustible centre-half however, with United in particular badly in need of defensive reinforcements.
