Real Madrid's Pepe would love to sign a new deal but admits he will have to move on if no contract is forthcoming.
The 24-year-old defender joined Real from Porto in 2007 and his current deal expires at the end of next season.
Manchester United are reportedly monitoring negotiations between the player and Real, for whom he has made six starts this term after cruciate ligament damage forced him to miss much of the 2009/10 campaign.
He told Marca: "When Madrid show they intend to keep me, it would be logical to suggest my first option is them.
"But we are footballers and when the club does not show an interest, it is obvious I'd have to find a life elsewhere.
"I have this season and then a year (on my contract) so I have time. If it was up to me, it would have been renewed by now because I love the team and the fans."
