The Brazil-born defender was subsequently linked with a host of suitors, including Arsenal and Wolves.

However, former club FC Porto have now confirmed the return of the 109-time capped centre-back, who represented the club between 2004 and 2007 before his lucrative €30m transfer to Los Blancos.

Pepe will provide Dragões with a wealth of experience for the second half of the campaign as the lead second-place Braga by six points in the title race.

The Primeira Liga champions also remain in the UEFA Champions League with a last-16 tie against AS Roma set for February.
