Chelsea has just announced that they have agreed to terms for transferring Portuguese defender Ricardo Carvalho to Real Madrid. The signing reunites “The Special One” with his on-field alter ego and strengthens Real’s defense.

The Guardian has the terms at around 8 million euros, with Carvalho having agreed to personal terms on a two-year deal with Los Blancos.

Real Madrid just got tougher and smarter at the back with the addition of Carvalho. Jose seems to have gotten his way again, when will his magic touch end? No time soon it appears, as he continues to attract great players everywhere he goes.

Manchester United and EPL fans will be happy to see the Chelsea man leave, that is until they are forced to face him in the Champions League.
