Former Chelsea centre-back Ricardo Carvalho has signed a new one-year extension with French club AS Monaco.

The Portuguese defender joined Monaco from Real Madrid last summer on a one-year contract and made 40 appearances for the club last season.

Monaco finished second in the league behind French champions Paris Saint-Germain and his performances have been rewarded with a contract extension.

A Monaco statement read: “AS Monaco are pleased to announce the contract extension of an additional year for R. Carvalho.”

The Ligue 1 side sacked Claudio Ranieri and appointed Leonardo Jardim as their new manager this summer and he will require the experience of Carvalho in the squad next season.  


The former Chelsea defender, who was signed for the Blues by Jose Mourinho in 2004, has also earned 75 caps for Portugal and is a Champions League winner with FC Porto.
