Real Betis Announce Signing Of Portuguese International William Carvalho

share on:

William Carvalho has joined Real Betis from Sporting Lisbon, signing a five-year deal with the Spanish club.

Carvalho was linked throughout the summer with a move to the Premier League, with Everton among the clubs interested in securing the midfielder.

The 26-year-old, who represented Portugal at the World Cup, is heading to Betis in a deal reportedly worth £22m, despite Monaco‘s best attempts to persuade Sporting to hold off accepting a bid.

William Carvalho recently terminated his contract with former club Sporting Lisbon, from the Portuguese Liga NOS, after an attack on Lisbon’s training centre in May by a group of ultras. They trashed the centre and attacked players and staff, in violent protest against the club’s chairman, who has since been replaced.
