Carvalho close to Monaco

Ricardo Carvalho is another who is reported on the verge of moving to Monaco, as his Real Madrid contract comes to a close.

The Portuguese centre-back is considered to be on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu once his deal expires in June.

It is understood that the 35-year-old has received an offer from Monaco, the newly promoted Ligue 1 outfit owned by billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.

Diego Lopez, Fabio Coentrao, Victor Valdes and Radamel Falcao have all also been listed in recent reports as talking to the club from the Principality.
