Real Madrid sign Éder Militão

Real Madrid have today announced the signing of Éder Militão from FC Porto.

The defender has signed a six-year deal at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, keeping him at the club until 30 June 2025.

Éder Militão has been a regular for his side in the Portuguese Primeira Liga so far this season since arriving from São Paulo last summer. The 21-year-old is predominately a centre-back though has started a handful at games at right-back for Porto this season.

The defender likes to get stuck into challenges, reads the game well and is capable of bringing the ball out of defence too. Éder Militão will face stiff competition to start games next season, competing with Sergio Ramos, Raphaël Varane and Nacho.

Real Madrid’s new signing made his senior international debut for Brazil back in September and was called up to the squad for their two games in October.

The signing comes just three days after Zinedine Zidane was reappointed as manager of the world football giants.
