Done Deal: £30m-rated Red Devils transfer target joined Real Madrid
Real Madrid added Porto defender Eder Militao who linked with Man United and Juventus. Los Blancos have problems in the back-line as Nacho and Vallejo are in a terrible form, Sergio Ramos already up to 32 and their back-up is necessary. Zinedine Zidane preferred to sign Brazil international who has a fantastic season and paid attention.
Now Red Devils have to search for another centre-back as they also linked with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Kalidou Koulibaly. Brazilian defender joined the Portuguese club from Sao Paolo last summer with a €5m deal. He has a vast potential and can become a world-class centre-back if he continuous improvement.
In this campaign, the 21-year-old footballer already made 34 appearances, scored three goals and made two assists in all tournament. Eder helped Porto to win the Champions League second match against Roma and reach the quarter-finals. He is a versatile defender and can play in centre-back and right-back positions.
Militao has contracted with the Spanish club until 2025, and his release clause is around €35m. He also named in national team squad for this international break which is already a significant achievement for the footballer. Real Madrid kicked out from the Champions League and Copa del Rey and they are in a third place in La Liga table.
It is a terrible result and Florentino Perez planning to rebuild the club during the summer transfer window. Several world-class footballers are on his radar like Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard, French midfielder N’Golo Kante, Spurs star Christian Eriksen and PSG forward Kylian Mbappé and Neymar.
