"Real Madrid C.F. and FC Porto have reached an agreement on the transfer of Eder Militao", read the club statement "He will stay at the club for the next six seasons until 30 June 2025".

An agreement is now in place, with the Blancos having got their man.

Militao, 21, becomes the first signing at Real since Zinedine Zidane returned as head coach on Monday, replacing the sacked Santiago Solari.

"The 21-year-old defender will join the club next season and is already a full Brazil global".

Interestingly, the centre-half, who also doubles as a right-back, featured 20 times for Porto in the Portuguese topflight this campaign, netting two goals along with two assists.

"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". It stands out for its speed, placement and ability to anticipate.

"These qualities have been on consistent display since his arrival at Porto last summer as he has adapted swiftly to the European game".

"Prior to making the move to Portugal, Militao made a name for himself in Brazilian football".

The 21-year-old has impressed for Porto, since arriving in a €4m (£3.5m) deal from Sao Paulo last summer.

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