Eder Militao signs for Real Madrid from Porto

15 March, 2019, 05:16 | Author: Isabel Grant

Los Blancos have had a dismal season and made a decision to restore Zinedine Zidane as manager earlier this week.

And he hasn't wasted any time in making his first addition.

A statement on Real Madrid's website reads: "Real Madrid and Porto have agreed the transfer of the player Éder Militão, who will be linked to the club during the next six seasons, until June 30, 2025".

Real Madrid have confirmed that an agreement is officially in place over the signing of Brazilian defender Eder Militao from Porto this summer.

But, after just 33 appearances, Real Madrid were convinced to sign him for €50 million and he has signed a contract until 2025.

Both clubs announced the move on Thursday and the Spanish club say the 21-year-old Brazil worldwide will sign a contract until 2025 with them. Militao was named as the best defender in the competition for five consecutive matches.

"His speed, positioning and anticipation are his greatest assets, while he is also strong in the air".

Militao has scored three goals for Porto this season, including one in the Champions League group-stage win over Schalke.

And highlights of him in action for Porto shows he is an exceptional defender.

"A versatile footballer, Militao plays largely as a centre-back although he has also spent time at right-back".
