Carvalho set for two year Real deal

MADRID, August 11- Chelsea's Portuguese defender Ricardo Carvalho is set to sign a two-year deal with Real Madrid, the Spanish club said on Wednesday.The English Premier League champions earlier confirmed they have agreed a fee with Real Madrid for the sale of the 32-year-old Portuguese defender.

"The player will be bound to Real Madrid for the next two seasons," Real Madrid said in a statement without giving details of the transfer fee which Spanish media have reported will be in the region of eight million euros.

Carvalho will join compatriot Jose Mourinho, his manager at both Porto and Chelsea, at Spanish giants Real, having won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 when Mourinho coached the club.

He joined Mourinho at Chelsea that year for a fee of around 20 million euros but last year he fell down the pecking order at the west London club

In total he made 210 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 11 goals, and during his time at Stamford Bridge, helped the team win three Premier League titles, two FA Cups and two English League Cups.

A regular for most of his time at Chelsea, he made just 18 appearances last season – which he has called "the worst year of my life" – as injuries caused him to fall out of the starting line-up.
