The midfielder’s manager has told the midfielder has focused on his own game rather than offers from abroad…
Arsenal and Manchester United are facing hot competition in their race to sign Sporting Midfielder William Carvalho, according to Goal.
Both sides have been linked with moves for the tenacious midfielder, and Arsenal apparently had a £21.3m bid rejected in the summer, but they will face stiff competition from England and abroad. Sporting manager Marco Silva revealed:
“William is a target for English teams, but I want him to play his game… William has many offers. Let’s wait until January.”

Carvalho’s manager also addressed his form, which has dipped since last season, saying:
“He’s not playing at the same level as last season because last season he was a surprise.”
