Manchester United flew representatives down from Manchester to meet him. Chelsea took him on a tour of their Cobham headquarters. There were meetings with Arsenal and, yes, Liverpool too.
Imagine you are a 19-year-old and the biggest of the clubs are trying their hardest to get your signature on a piece of paper.
What he wouldn’t have imagined then, is the situation he is in now. Instead of being a regular in the Liverpool main team, he is becoming a regular of the Liverpool loan army.
In the latest news, he has been loaned off to Championship side Hull City for the rest of the season. He has been captured in the Hull City shirt on the MKM stadium pitch.
Fans might have noticed a thing or two about the lad in his latest appearance though.
The player has gained some mass and isn’t the same old slender-looking kid who could be shoved around by defenders easily.
Looking at the body language in this picture, the youngster doesn’t look too happy or excited with his new destination.
All these signs have made the fans believe that Carvalho has lost some motivation and has actually become fat. They are losing their mind over this latest development.
The winger hasn’t had a good start to his life at Liverpool. He has gotten to play only 21 games and scored 3 goals for them but has been on loan at RB Leipzig since. You would think he gets a bit of experience on loan, but even that hasn’t panned out for him.
He has only completed the whole 90 minutes for the German club only once and hasn’t produced any goal or even an assist. Now, he has been demoted to Championship side.
Fans have made up their mind that he is in vacation mode now after getting loaned out and is on a downward spiral already. The German beers and sausages have gotten the better of him.
Some fans have come to his defense to clarify that he is not fat but has just gained muscle mass.
Changing diets to gain some muscle weight so that he can hold up man to man during a tussle with the defenders is a legitimate reason behind this.
A few are pointing at the fit of the shirt, hoping that it is in Kappa size (USA) or maybe it is the camera angle which is making it look weird.
Feeling sad over another talent going to waste, people just want it to work out in favor of the 23-year-old.
We do hope this is just some rustiness due to not getting enough playtime and he will shake it off to shine for Hull City. We don’t want another Josh Onomah story for such a talented young prospect.
