The Portugal international is a rumoured target for both the Gunners and the Red Devils as the transfer window ticks towards its end of month deadline.
The pair, as well as Liverpool, are thought to be shopping around for reinforcements, and Carvalho, as one of Europe’s most highly-rated players, has emerged on their radars.
The 22-year-old Sporting Lisbon man has been lauded for his physical playing style and eye for a pass, with the moniker of ‘the new Patrick Vieira’ having been handed to him by some.
And now the youngster has confessed that he wants to play in England and that there are teams in contact with his agent, Jorge Mendes:
“My dream is to play in England. I know some clubs are interested but my agent, Jorge, is looking after it and I am relaxed.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“Now my mission is to work in Sporting and they will be in charge of any transfer and my future.
“That is very important.”
