Real Madrid are making a new move for Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho.

The Telegraph says Real need to bolster their defence over the summer, with Michel Salgado and Christophe Metzelder likely to leave and Italian World Cup winner Fabio Cannavaro nearing the end of his career.

A Madrid source said: "We have never been able to get Carvalho because of his connection with Mourinho. Now he has left Chelsea, we feel there's a real chance."
