Portuguese worldwide defender Pepe on Wednesday arrived in Istanbul to join Turkish champions Besiktas from Real Madrid on a two-year deal.

The Turkish Super Lig club confirmed the free agent Portugal worldwide had arrived in the city with a photo and a statement on their official website.

The 34-year-old Brazilian-born defender Kepler Laveran Lima Ferreira joined Real from Porto in 2007 for 30 million euros ($34 million), winning the La Liga title in his first campaign. He could not play in the 2017 Champions League final against Juventus.

The centre-back could not agree a new deal with Los Blancos after a decade at the Santiago Bernabeu, in which he won La Liga and the Champions League three times each. Fikret Orman, the Beşiktaş chairman, was personally involved in the signing process, following efforts by the transfer committee president, Umut Güner.
