Real Madrid agree deal for defender Eder Militao from Porto

Eder Militao Real Madrid

Real Madrid have clinched a deal to sign the Brazilian defender Eder Militao, 21, from Portuguese champions FC Porto from next season, the two clubs announced on Thursday.

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

The young Brazilian defender only signed for the Portuguese club in 2018 for £5 million.

But Real Madrid raved about him in their statement confirming his signing.

The Brazil worldwide, who joined Porto from Sao Paulo in the summer, will join up with his new team-mates at the start of next season.

Militao will join Madrid at over the summer and the club hope he will add depth to central defense which now consists of the aging Sergio Ramos, Rafael Varane and Nacho Fernandez, as well as the talented, but highly injury prone Jesus Vallejo, who will probably be sent on loan or sold to make room in the squad.

Militao will be the first of many signings Real Madrid make this summer, after a dismal season reaffirmed the need for an overhaul on the squad that won three consecutive Champions League titles.

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

"In addition, it has a good aerial game".

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

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

Eder may well be young, but he clearly has the talent to establish himself as a key cog in Real Madrid's defence. Have your say by leaving a comment below.
