The Spanish giants have paid a reported 6.7 million for the Portuguese centre-back, who has signed a two-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side.

The 32-year-old will be reunited with compatriot and former boss Jose Mourinho, who also managed Carvalho when the pair were at Porto.

Carvalho passed a medical on Thursday morning before completing his move, and admitted that playing for the Liga side is the culmination of a dream.

"I've wanted to come here for a long time," he said.

"Mourinho is a winning manager and I have come to a winning club."

Carvalho is Mourinho's fifth signing of the summer transfer window following the captures of Sami Khedira, Pedro Leon, Angel di Maria and Sergio Canales.
