Real Madrid sign €50m Eder Militao from Porto on six-year contract

Real Madrid have signed Porto defender Eder Militao as their second revolution under Zinedine Zidane gathers pace just days after his return.

Meanwhile, Zinedine Zidane's return to the bench was not a good sign for the Colombia worldwide either, as he departed after a season in which he didn't enjoy playing time under the Frenchman.

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.

On Thursday they announced the signing of 21-year-old Militao, who will join from Porto in a €50million (£43m) deal in the summer. Militao was named as the best defender in the competition for five consecutive matches. "Qualities that he has worn since his arrival last summer at Oporto, where he has shown a rapid adaptation to European football".

The centre-back, who started his professional career with Sao Paulo before moving to Porto in August 2018, has been linked with a number of European clubs in recent months.

The defender has made one appearance for Brazil and can play at centre back, full back or defensive midfield.
