Carvalho Close To Monaco Move

Real Madrid’s veteran defender, Ricardo Carvalho, is set to join Monaco.

According to Le Parisien, 35-year-old former Portuguese international Carvalho has arrived in the French principality to ink his deal with the big-spending Ligue 2 champions.

Carvalho is out of contract at the Bernabeu at the end of the Spanish season, and with his compatriot Jose Mourinho also coming to the end of his tenure there, Carvalho has not been offered a contract extension.

RMC says that Carvalho has been offered a one-year deal by Monaco, with the option to renew at the end of next season.

Monaco are attempting to build a team capable of challenging for top-flight trophies immediately, and have already signed Carvalho’s former national team-mate, Joao Moutinho, as well as Colombian flyer James Rodriguez.

Bankrolled by a Russian billionaire, Monaco are also reportedly close to agreeing deals for Radamel Falcao and Victor Valdes.

In addition to those two bona fide stars, Carvalho could offer Monaco a wise old head, with championship winning experience in three top European leagues.
