Real Madrid are keen on Carvalho

Carvalho had been represented up to now by Jorge Mendes, but the player has dropped his firm Gestifute to sign with Media Base Sports, run by Pere Guardiola. 

Real Madrid targetting Carvalho

Carvalho has been a target for some time for many of Europe's biggest clubs, with Real Madrid heading the list. The change of agent isn't great news for Real Madrid, not because they have a problem with Pere Guardiola, but because Mendes has long been a favoured ally of Florentino Pérez, Real Madrid's president. 

Carvalho and Portuguese success

The Portugal defensive midfielder, born in Angola, stands a solid 1.87 metres and his 89 kilos mean he isn't the quickest player on the pitch, but he's a forceful presence. He's played for the full Portugal national side since 2013, being called up for the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and being part of the triumphant side that lifted the European Championship title in 2016.
