Former Arsenal and Manchester City player Samir Nasriis set to leave Turkish side Antalyaspor. The club has confirmed that the 30-year old midfielder would exit after a disappointing spell. The player was expected to breathe life into his dying career but he could not quite achieve that in Turkey.
Former Real Madrid central defender Pepe says he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to join him at Turkish side Besiktas. The Portuguese wants his compatriot to leave the Bernabeu to join him at the club with a rising European profile. The Euro 2016 winner wants to be reunited with the former Red Devils’ star.
The pair played together for eight years in Spain, winning multiple titles. Pepe ended his decade long stay at the club last summer. He moved to Istanbul where he is helping them become a formidable force in European club football. The 34-year old defender had offers from different top sides but he opted to move to the Turkey giant.
Germany are the current champions of football after having emerged victorious during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and now Joachim Low’s squad has to try to defend their title and prove why they are historically rated so highly.
With the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup edging closer and closer, the qualifiers have been taking place and national teams from all over the world are trying to earn their qualification ticket. There are many teams that are already eliminated or that have an extremely difficult chance to make it through but Germany on the other side has already qualified.
Pepe is a 34 year old defender who is mostly known for his time spent performing for Real Madrid as it was the club where the Portuguese player managed to lift some of the most coveted pieces of silverware in the world football including the UEFA Champions League and the Spanish League, La Liga.
The time-lapse from Pepe saw him joining Real Madrid on 2007 and leaving in 2017, during his final season spent at the Santiago Bernabeu, his appearances significantly dropped and at the age of 34, he opted to make a move to Besiktas.
