Real Madrid defender Pepe has confirmed that he is leaving the European champions after 10 years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Portuguese international, now 34, joined Los Blancos in a £25m deal in 2007, and went on to make 334 appearances for the club.

Now Pepe is exiting on a free transfer but leaves unhappy at the club's handling of his departure - especially manager Zinedine Zidane.
