If Besiktas do manage to bring Pepe in, it'll be worth seeing who Los Blancos decide to replace the Portuguese defender with, as Madrid would only be left with three first team central defenders in Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Nacho Fernandez.

After announcing on Tuesday that Pepe had arrived in Istanbul for transfer negotiations, the Turkish Super Lig club confirmed the deal was completed the following day.

Pepe won three Champions League crowns and three La Liga trophies in his decade-long stay at the Bernabeu where he joined from FC Porto in 2007. He also won the Euro 2016 with Portugal in his time with Real Madrid. The most notable incidents include kicking out at Getafe's Javier Casquero after fouling him and punching Juan Albin in a game in April 2009, earning a 10-game ban, and later said he had "lost control".

Orman met the center back in Lisbon after his return from the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation on July 3. Pepe appeared with a Beşiktaş jersey in the late hours of July 4, writing "No bad days, loading." on his social media account.
