The Portugal international had entered the final year of his deal and, after Sergio Ramos penned an extension earlier this week, the club have moved to tie down another long-term servant.

pepePepe, who joined the Santiago Bernabeu side from Porto in 2007, remains a key part of the side, having featured in 27 Liga games last term.

The 32-year-old has won two league and Copa del Rey titles, and he has lifted the Champions League once with the Santiago Bernabeu club.
