Pepe is immersed in the process of renewal, but the efforts do not end up to get a good deal. The contract ends in 2012 and he initially had planned to fulfill his contract with Real Madrid. By knowing the interest of Chelsea to have his services for next season, the defense has decided to study the proposal.
The English club managed yesterday the signing of David Luiz from Benfica for 35 million euros. But for the next season, Roman Abramovich, owner of Chelsea, also wants to gain the services of Pepe.
Pepe was related to Barcelona few months ago, the main rival of the white team, although it seems like a strategy for the Portuguese player's managers. The defense player moved to the capital of Spain for a fee of €30m from Porto in 2007.
