Ricardo Carvalho has revealed he has an agreement with Chelsea which will see him leave Stamford Bridge this summer and has issued a come and get me plea to former boss Jose Mourinho.
Carvalho followed Mourinho to Chelsea in 2004 after winning the Champions League with him at Porto.
The Portugal defender was repeatedly linked with a move to Inter Milan during Mourinho's two years in charge at the San Siro and is now desperate to be reunited with him at Real Madrid.
"If there was a possibility to sign for Madrid I would go there right now swimming or running," Carvalho told Spanish sports newspaper AS. "Chelsea have a commitment with me to let me go this summer, for reasons which those responsible at the club and I know.
"It would be a dream to be able to play for Madrid, which for me is the best club in the world, and to do so under the orders of the best coach in the history of football.
"With Mourinho I experienced two marvellous periods at Porto and Chelsea. To have the opportunity to win another Champions League with him at Real Madrid would be something tremendous."
