Carvalho to hold talks on future

Ricardo Carvalho
Carvalho's current Chelsea contract has four years to run

Ricardo Carvalho has revealed he will discuss his Chelsea future with the club after he returns from Euro 2008.

The 30-year-old Portugal defender also admitted he would like to work again with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who has just taken over at Inter Milan.

Carvalho said: "I would love to be coached by Mourinho again.

"I have a contract with Chelsea. But you never know - sometimes a challenge is good for a player. I will speak with Peter Kenyon after Euro 2008."

He said he wanted to concentrate on Portugal's progress in Austria and Switzerland before focusing on his club future.


"I have heard a few comments [about a move to Inter]. It's a club matter, and I am focused on playing for the national team so we will see after," Carvalho added.

"But I would love to be coached by Mourinho again. The majority of the trophies I have won were won with Mourinho.

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Highlights: Portugal 2-0 Turkey

"At Chelsea, there is a new cycle happening so we will see what happens. I have a contract with Chelsea."

Carvalho, who joined Chelsea from Porto for 19.85m in 2004 after winning the Champions League under Mourinho, signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge in May last year.
