Real Madrid agree deal for defender Eder Militao from Porto

Real Madrid on Thursday confirmed Porto's 21-year-old Brazilian defender Eder Militao as their first signing for the 2019-2020 season.

"The 21-year-old defender will join the club next season and is already a full Brazil global".

Real and FC Porto have reached an agreement over the transfer of Eder Militao, whose deal with the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners will run until 2025.

He has scored three goals and picked up two assists in 34 appearances for the Portuguese side, with his displays catching the eye of Madrid. He has been named the best defender in the league for the last five months in a row.

But his overall performance have not improved at all, having conceded 37 goals in 21 games, with just 5 clean-sheets. "It has been like that since the beginning".

Real Madrid have confirmed their first signing since the return of Zinedine Zidane as head coach. "Qualities that he has worn since his arrival last summer at Oporto, where he has shown a rapid adaptation to European football".

He is also a full Brazil worldwide and made his debut against El Salvador in September 2018.

Militao was previously signed from Sao Paulo where he played in the 2017/18 season.

He has enjoyed considerable success in that role before and will be hoping to see Militao help to deliver more once welcomed into the Real fold.
