Chelsea's Portuguese central defender Ricardo Carvalho has admitted that he would consider leaving Stamford Bridge this summer. The 31-year-old has been strongly linked with Internazionale in recent weeks, with the Italian champions managed by former Blues boss Jose Mourinho. Carvalho stated: "I am available for a club who wishes to have me. "But before being approached, an agreement must be found with Chelsea, although I am delighted that several clubs are interested in me. "I have had four extraordinary years at Chelsea until this year, which has not been very good, indeed the worst of my career. "I wasn't in great shape because I haven't played. But if there is no transfer, I will be fine at Chelsea." Carvalho moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2004 from FC Porto and has since racked up nearly 200 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.
