Parker dude, Chivu is better than Pepe nowadays? no way.
problem is people don't watch our League (no surprise there) and don't realize how good some of the players we "have" really are...

Only the muppets don't realise that. It's quite obvious the Portuguese league has a lot of talent, hence the more popular leagues buying "their" players.

I'm not saying that Pepe isn't good, he is. But Chivu is better, he's been top class for at least 4 year, he's one of the best defender in Serie A. Pepe never played in national team. Unfortunately he wants to stay in Italy.
Someday he can be as good as Chivu or even better, I'm not denying that, but atm he isn't.

can anyone describe pepe in greater detail? Honestly, I know nothing about him

Good news on saviola also, he'll be a great sub/part time starter

Now just add to our midfield

you have more than enough information about Pepe in the last couple of pages of this thread dude, also in Porto's thread.
unless you wanna know what's his favourite Power Ranger and sh't like that.

MaSsiVe, is Pepe a non-eu player?
i think he is but he should be getting his potuguess passport soon, and he says he wants to represent portugal not brazil so that helps us in that sense.

Interesting news on the price of Pepe, Porto's president says 30 million euros while Calderon and SER are saying 12 million euros while this 30 million euros could be if Quaresma comes in and Baptista goes the other way. Seems a little hard to belive but the 30 million euro pricetag is high too so lets see how this turns out.

Also even if we did spend that kind of money on him it would have been the same with Chivu because he was demanding so much money from his contract, so over 5 years the amount would more or less be the same for both CB's, that is if we indeed did buy Pepe for 30 million euros.

Cadena Ser is reporting that Pepe will be presented on Thursday, they are also saying that something is fishy about the 30 M euro price, Calderón says we will sign 5-6 players total, and that the Drenthe transfer is very advanced. He also states that Mijatovic and Shuster really want to add Drenthe to the team.

Sergio Ramos will sign a new contract tommarow, the deal will still expire on 2013 but he will now get that raise that he was initally promised by Perez. I am very happy for Ramos, he really deserves it.

Well that's about all for now, lets see how the Pepe transfer fee pans out in the next couple of days.

Kléper Laveran Lima Ferreira (Pepe) and Saviola are ours! Awesome!
getting Quaresma would be a smart move aswell. Baptista never seemed to fit into any position he played in at Real. Didnt do to badly at Arsenal tho. and we neeeeeeed some wingers. Reyes should be kept, i dont know why the decision to keep his is so hard. He's a great player. Robben isnt leaving Chelsea, says Mourinho, at least not without a large price-tag. Will Drenthe be used as a Left Mid? has he actually played there or is he just an attacking Wing Back?

and

who are the players that we are looking at getting to fill the Attacking-Mid role? actual possibilities, not peoples wish list.

I would think Drenthe would play in the midfield, and who knows about the AM position. I mean look at the Pepe transfer, that really came out of nowhere.

Also if anyone is still confused on me saying that Pepe would cost more or less what Chivu would cost there is an article that explians it on AS. http://www.as.com/articulo/futbol/Ma...daiftb_32/Tes/

Basically it says that if we got Chivu for 18 million and gave him that contract he wanted and we got Pepe but according to the reports he agreed for a lower contract the actual amounts over time would look like this

Chivu : 18 million euros on signing fee + 35 million euros on 5 years = 53 million euros.

Pepe : 30 million euros on signing fee + 15 million euros on 5 years = 45 million euros

Chivu is 27 and Pepe is 23 so even if we did pay 30 million euros its not such a bad deal if the contract of Pepe is true ( these numbers are before tax btw ).

If Drenthe comes he should be loaned our for 2 seasons. If Schuster is planning to play him, then I guess we will s*ck at the left side. The guy isnt good enough for Real atm (and I doubt he will be sometime). As a LWB he really isnt good. So I dont see the point of getting the guy, except if we loan him. And above that, I'v read several times that if Drenthe comes, Marcelo will be leaving. And some say Marcelo will be loaned, the others say (mostly Dutch sites) that he will be leaving for good. I'm not against loaning Marcelo to a Primera club, but letting Marcelo leave?! Hell NO! The guy was very good at Fluminense, played decent for the time he got here. So just loan him a season and play Torres at LB! Forget about Drenthe. Atm he is overrated.

An interesting quote from Calderon here talking about Pepe:

"He is one of the best central defenders in the world and will form a great partnership with [Christoph] Metzelder."

Does this mean Cannavaro will leave? :brow:

Did you realize that our club now only sign player below 26?? (except metzelder)
I meant marcelo,gago,higuian,pepe,saviola..
I know that Calderon arent interested in Galactico.but we should sign at least one experienced player..

And how to join madridista sgf??
