Queens Park Rangers are ready to boost their defensive options in the January transfer window by making a move for veteran centre-back Ricardo Carvalho, according to the Metro.
The Portuguese is currently at La Liga champions Real Madrid, but it is thought that manager Jose Mourinho is happy for him to move on in the New Year.
His deal with the Spanish giants runs out at the end of this season, and they have told him that a new-deal is not likely to be offered to him.
Carvalho was a key part of Chelsea’s defence for six years and in that time he won three English Premier League titles. Now, he is wanted back in West London – but by QPR boss Mark Hughes.
Rangers have really struggled in the league so far and Hughes wants to add some experience and quality to a defensive that have conceded 18 goals in nine top flight encounters.
The 34-year-old clearly loved his time in England and now the London club are ready to offer him a 18-month-deal that would bring him to Loftus Road until the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
He would also join up with former Real teammate Esteban Granero and other big name players such as Julio Cesar.
