Sporting's most precious player has recently become a target of best Premier League sides, as well as other European clubs, such as Internazionale and AS Monaco.
Carvalho was a part of Portugal squad in the World Cup playoffs versus Sweden, making a debut in the second leg. Despite his inexperience on the international stage, the 22-year-old born in Angola is a contender for the World Cup given his fine performances for Sporting.
A product of the Sporting academy, he has reportedly made other clubs chase his signature in favour of making him a first-team player soon and the potential of becoming one of Europe's best youngsters.
Manchester United are closer than ever of signing the player. They are ready to single out £35 million for the Portuguese midfielder and despite of their bad season, he would surely want to join the team from Old Trafford.
Would it be a smart move? If the Red Devils will be making a move for him in summer, some players are undoubtedly going to leave. Four central midfielders with enormous quality in the club is enough and making a move for Carvalho could only be wasting money if they can't recoup it elsewhere.
As we know, Liverpool are also in the race for talented midfielders, such as Ivan Rakitic and Ross Barkley. Among them, they are keeping an eye on Carvalho, as a possible replacement for 33-year-old Steven Gerrard. Winning the Premier League title would ensure more power of negotiation for the club.
Meanwhile, Serie A side Internazionale are looking for new talented players after another unsuccessful season in the league. Obviously, Hernanes, Fredy Guarin and Mateo Kovacic haven't fulfilled the expectations of their manager and the club are now seeking for some fresh blood.
AS Monaco are ending the season behind arch-rivals Paris Saint Germain and are ready to spend numerous of millions on new signings. With all of these clubs in the race for the midfielder, it is unlikely they will succeed in bringing him to Stade Louis II.
