Chelsea Manager Andres Villas-Boas Targets Real Madrid Defender Pepe
Newly appointed Chelsea manager Andres Villas-Boas views Real Madrid defender Pepe as his first signing at Stamford Bridge according to the Guardian. The Portuguese defender has been a longstanding, consistent presence in the Spanish giants defence and is considered one of the strongest centre halves in World Football.

However Madrid are eager to maintain their Portugal international and could demand up to £15 million for the defender.
