It’s no surprise to hear that William Carvalho is the subject of big money bids. The Sporting Club midfielder is one of the best players in Portugal and was a key man in the national team’s Euro 2016 triumph.

Given that Sporting are trailing league leaders Benfica by eight points, they’re unlikely to sell in January.
