The 21-year-old will provide competition for veteran defender Sergio Ramos and World Cup victor Raphael Varane next season, as Madrid look to refresh an ageing squad under Zidane's leadership.

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

Real Madrid have confirmed the arrival of Zinedine Zidane's first signing after his return as the club as sealed a massive deal for Brazilian defender Eder Militão.


"Multi-purpose player, Militao plays central, although he has also occupied the right-back position".

Real Madrid have had many issues during the 2018/19 season, one of which has been the defence.

"He comes to the Whites from Porto, where he has quickly become a star of the team in only his first year in the Portuguese League".


The 21-year-old has impressed for Porto, since arriving in a €4m (£3.5m) deal from Sao Paulo last summer. It stands out for its speed, placement and ability to anticipate.

Football fans will be able to catch a glimpse of Militao in the Champions League quarter-finals this season, after Porto advanced to the last eight with an extra-time win over Roma in the last 16.

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