According to reports, Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has urged his club to sign West Ham target William Carvalho.
Carvalho was a priority target of the Hammers during the summer transfer window and they ended up being involved in a spat with Sporting Lisbon over a transfer. The Hammers claimed that they had made a bid for the player while Lisbon denied that this was the case.
Carvalho is keen to play in one of the World’s top Leagues with England said to be his preferred destination.
He had previously agreed to join Manchester United whilst David Moyes was manager, however a potential fell through after the Red Devils opted to sack the Scottish manager.
Ronaldo has now urged his club to sign his Portuguese national team team-mate according to Don Balon. Considering that relations between Lisbon and West Ham are in a bad state, Madrid could have the advantage in the race to sign the player should they make their interest known.
