Pepe may just be another soccer star from Europe to migrate to China to pile up the cash in his bank account.

The problem is the contract of Pepe which needs an extension for him to remain at Bernabeu.

Los Blancos have definitely made a bargain considering they signed the player for €6 million. Predrag Mijatovic is credited with discovering the talented defender. Madrid president Ramon Calderon bought into the potential of the then young player and offered him a seven-year contract.
