However, the 22-year-old now looks set to stay at Sporting Lisbon for the immediate future after confirming that he has no plans to leave the Portuguese club.

“I am under contract with Sporting and I’m a Sporting player,” Carvalho told A Bola.

“There is no way I can say I am going to leave. I am fine at Sporting.”

Carvalho, who has also been touted as a target for Manchester United this summer, scored eight goals in 29 league appearances for Sporting Lisbon last season.
