Jose Mourinho Ready to Keep Ricardo Carvalho

Thursday, 19th July, 2012

Portuguese defender Ricardo Carvalho wants to extend his stay at Real Madrid and believes that he still has one year left at the top level in Spain.

The player has been linked with a move away from the Galacticos this summer after he lost his first-team spot last season following a lengthy back injury.

In fact, the 34-year-old central defender only played eight La Liga games for Los Blancos in the 2011/12 campaign and there have been strong rumors about a departure from the Spanish giants.

However, according to Spanish daily Marca, Carvalho wants to stay at the Bernabeu and has even rebuffed big money offers from Russia and Qatar for this purpose.

Indeed, the 34-year-old expressed his desire to continue at Real Madrid in a recent conversation with Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho.

The coach had left the decision to stay or go with the defender at the end of last season and has already told him that he can remain a Real Madrid player for another year if that is what he wants.

Mourinho and Carvalho have a special bond, forged at FC Porto and Chelsea. The Real Madrid boss has always shown confidence in the 2004 UEFA Best Club Defender of the Year. And now that the player has reached the twilight of his career, Mourinho is seemingly ready to give the centre back another year.

However, if Carvalho decides to stay, he will have to work hard to regain his place in the starting eleven as young French defender Raphael Varane and Raul Albiol are both ahead in the pecking order.
