William Carvalho latest: Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal target not coming to Premier League

The Sporting Lisbon player has been linked with a move all summer

William Carvalho has reaffirmed his commitment to Sporting Lisbon amid speculation linking him with various Premier League clubs.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been linked with the Portugal international, however it appears he will not be leaving this summer.

The 22-year-old told A Bola: "I am under contract with Sporting and I'm a Sporting player.

"There is no way I can say I am going to leave. I am fine at Sporting."

Manchester United's interest in Carvalho pre-dated Louis van Gaal's arrival at Old Trafford and amid concerns over the long-term fitness of another target - Arturo Vidal - United were thought to be ready to make a serious bid.

Arsenal have been the front runners for the midfielder with two bids which are understood to have been turned down.
