Real Madrid could rival the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea for the signing of Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, according to Fichajes.net.

The Spanish giants are set to offload Xabi Alonso to Bayern Munich in a surprise move late on in this transfer window, and may now move to bring in a replacement before the transfer deadline.

Although another Arsenal and Chelsea target, Sami Khedira, looks set to remain at the Bernabeu despite lengthy speculation over his future, Real could now swoop for another top-class player wanted in the Premier League with a bid for Carvalho.

The 22-year-old Portuguese international is widely regarded as one of the most promising youngsters in the game at the moment and has been linked with a move away from his club all summer.

United had currently been thought of as leading the chase for his signature, though Real’s financial power will no doubt make them serious contenders if they do step up their interest in him in the next couple of days.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side also beat Manchester United to the signing of Toni Kroos earlier this summer.
