Real Madrid defender Pepe has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2017.
The Portuguese, 32, follows in the footsteps of his central-back partner Sergio Ramos who also extended his contract early this week.
The Brazil-born Portugal international was at the Bernabeu, Friday morning, with agent Jorge Mendes, and put pen to paper on the new deal offered by Madrid president Florentino Perez.
“Real Madrid and Pepe have agreed the extension of the player’s contract, to remain at the club until 30 June 2017,” said a short club statement confirming the news.
Pepe joined Madrid from Porto in 2007 and has won two La Liga and Copa del Rey titles as well as one UEFA Champions League title.
