Galatasaray are in contact with Real Madrid defender Pepe over a potential summer move to the Süper Lig, according to reports in the Turkish media.

The 34-year-old, who is also being linked with a switch to China, is expected to leave Real at the end of the season after a decade in Madrid.

Portugal international Pepe is out of contract in June and, with Los Blancos only offering him the option of a 12-month extension, appears unlikely to renew.

The publication adds that initial conversations between the former FC Porto man and the 20-time Turkish champions have proved highly positive.

Since joining Real in 2007, Pepe has played 333 games and accumulated a medal haul that includes two LaLigas, two Champions Leagues and two Copas del Rey.
