Eder Militao signs for Real Madrid from Porto

The Spanish giants announced the transfer on their official website this morning.

It's clear that change is coming for Real Madrid.

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.

Real said Militao would join on a four-year deal until 2025.

Former Madrid defender Pepe - who plays alongside Militao at Porto - is likely to be a good source of advice for the youngster, having left the Dragons in 2007 to spend the next decade at the Santiago Bernabeu.




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

And he hasn't wasted any time in making his first addition. It stands out for its speed, placement and ability to anticipate.

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

"His superb performances have led to him making his full Brazil worldwide debut in a clash with El Salvador in September 2018".

"At 19 years old, he made his first-team debut in 2017 against Cruzeiro and then was then a mainstay for the Brazilian side until heading to Porto in 2018".
