Real Madrid Signs Eder Militao From Porto For $56.5M

In a brief statement in Real Madrid's official website, the Los Blancos confirmed that the defender has penned a six-year deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, starting from June 30.

Veteran defender Marcelo and Wales forward Gareth Bale are the most high profile names whose futures look uncertain under Zidane, while Dani Ceballos, Marco Asensio and Toni Kroos all have points to prove to their returning coach.

Zinedine Zidane is wasting no time in his second stint at Real Madrid after reports have emerged that the Frenchman is closing in on his second target. Hazard appeals not just because he is a favourite to coach Zinedine Zidane but because he is in the past year of his contract and for the same reason Madrid are pushing hard for Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.

On Thursday they announced the signing of 21-year-old Militao, who will join from Porto in a €50million (£43m) deal in the summer.

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.

Former Pimco Chief Executive Douglas Hodge is due to be arraigned in federal court in Boston, officials said. Loughlin is now filming a TV movie in B.C. for Hallmark Channel, where she has been a mainstay since 2013.

"Multi-purpose player, Militao plays central, although he has also occupied the right-back position. His speed, positioning and anticipation are his greatest assets, while he is also strong in the air".

Calderon revealed he is not in agreement with Perez, which he believes is a belief shared among key figures in the Madrid dressing room.

Militão only joined Porto from his hometown club São Paulo in August and he has been called into some of Tite's recent Brazil squads.

According to WhoScored's data, Militao is a well-rounded centre-back, whose strengths include aerial duels, dribbling, tackling and interceptions. "I wish the club all the best".
