Portuguese international defender Pepe has extended his contract with Real Madrid until 2017, the Spanish club announced on Friday, just days after his central defensive colleague Sergio Ramos also penned a new deal.

The 32-year-old Brazilian-born centre-back signed for Madrid from FC Porto for 30 million euros (USD 34 million). He will continue to compete with Frenchman Raphael Varane for a place alongside Ramos, who has extended his contract until 2020.

Madrid, under new coach Rafa Benitez, begin the new Spanish season with a trip to newly-promoted Sporting Gijon on Sunday.
