8:40: Pepe wants Real Madrid and Portugal team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo to join him at Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Pepe, who was limited to just 18 appearances last season, is out of contract at Real Madrid this summer.
The 34-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks.
