FC Porto have completed the transfer of left winger Gremio. It's about 23-year-old Pepe, who this winter could have become a Zenit player, but the footballer himself refused to move to Russia. According to rumors, the “blue-white-blue” were ready to pay about 20 million euros for the Brazilian.
It is reported that the parties signed a contract until 2026, while the agreement included a clause on compensation equal to 70 million euros. The winger will join his new team in the next transfer window. According to the website Transfermarkt.de, this deal allowed Gremio to increase the club's budget by € 15 million.
In the 2020 season, Pepe has scored 9 goals and 5 assists in 36 games played, 6 of which were in the Brazilian Cup. In addition, last year he took part in six matches with the Brazilian Olympic team, scoring three goals.
