Portugal international Pepe is no longer a Besiktas player.

Pepe has left Besiktas, sources close to the club have revealed. The former Real Madrid defender is reported to have said farewell to his teammates and the club’s staff on Saturday.

The Portugal international has collected his belongings from the club’s training facilities and is on the move to a new club.

According to the source, the player has received an enticing offer from a Premier League club and is in the final stages of finalizing the paperwork necessary to part ways with the Black Eagles.

There are multiple clubs from the Middle East who are also interested in the player’s services.

The player was in the final six months of his deal and had been allowed to hold talks with other potential suitors due to the club’s deteriorating finances. He was one of the club’s highest earners, pocketing €4,750,000 per season.

The 35-year-old had made 52 appearances for Besiktas during which he scored 7 goals.

The details of his transfer will be revealed in the coming days.
