Carvalho leaving Chelsea for Real
Published : 10 Aug 2010 21:17:00
Chelsea's Portugal defender Ricardo Carvalho will join Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid after both teams announced a deal has been agreed. The Blues confirmed they have agreed terms for the sale of the 32-year-old, while Madrid revealed Carvalho will join on a two-year deal. A Chelsea statement read: "Chelsea Football Club can confirm it has agreed terms with Real Madrid for the transfer of Ricardo Carvalho. "The transfer is subject to a medical and the player agreeing personal terms. "Chelsea would like to thank Riccy for his six years of service, and we wish him well in his future career." Carvalho joins up with former boss Mourinho, with whom he worked so successfully at both Porto and Chelsea. The centre-back heads to the Spanish capital - reportedly for a fee of around 8million euros (£6.6million) - on the back of a hugely impressive World Cup showing in which Portugal conceded just one goal. A Madrid statement read: "Real Madrid CF and FC Chelsea have reached an agreement for the transfer of Ricardo Carvalho. "The player will be linked to Real Madrid CF the next two seasons."
