Real Madrid defender Pepe has snubbed a host of Premier League clubs by agreeing to sign a new deal with the La Liga giants.

The Portuguese international had stalled over a new deal, swelling rumours that his time at Madrid may be over.

But in agreeing a new four-year extenuation, has scuppered Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United's attempts to sign the 28-year-old.

Arsenal have seen defensive issues undermine their bid for the Premier League title this season, as injuries and lack of form have disrupted their back four.


Despite possession the Premier League's best defensive record, Chelsea could reenforce their back-four for the new season to cover John Terry who could be moving to Real Madrid.

United meanwhile, who are expected to win their 19th league title this season, have had to endure injuries to Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand this season and are sure to add reinforcements to their depleted squad.

With a move for Pepe now seeming unlikely, Arsenal, Chelsea and United may now fight it out for Phil Jones or Gary Cahill this summer.
