Chelsea readying January move for long-term Man United target

Chelsea are weighing up a January move for highly-rated Portuguese midfielder William Carvalho, according to reports from TuttoMercatoWeb.

The 23-year-old Sporting Lisbon ace has long been hailed as one of the best young anchormen in European football and has been aligned with Manchester United since the days of David Moyes.

Despite the persistent links – Liverpool and Arsenal’s names have also been thrown into the mix – he’s remained in his homeland, but reports claim that Chelsea are looking at a winter deal.

Jose Mourinho’s side have made a stuttering start to the new Premier League season and currently sit just four points above the relegation zone after seven games.

Midfielders Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas have been widely criticised for their below-par form, so Carvalho could provide competition for the duo.

The youngster was named the Player of the Tournament during the 2015 Euro U-21 Championships.
