European champions Real Madrid clinch Sh6 billion deal to sign Brazilian star

Eder Militao

Real Madrid have clinched a deal to sign the Brazilian defender Eder Militao, 21, from Portuguese champions FC Porto from next season, the two clubs announced on Thursday.

Zidane completed his return to Real Madrid as manager earlier this week, replacing the axed Santiago Solari.

Real said Militao would join on a four-year deal until 2025.

Both clubs announced the move on Thursday and the Spanish club say the 21-year-old Brazil global will sign a contract until 2025 with them.

"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".

Monfils - the 18th seed - will face the victor of the match between Djokovic and Kohlschreiber for a place in the quarter-final. Raonic faced 1-4 in the deciding set before a run of five straight games sealed the win, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, after nearly two hours.

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

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

"His speed, positioning and anticipation are his greatest assets, while he is also strong in the air. Qualities that he has worn since his arrival last summer at Oporto, where he has shown a rapid adaptation to European football".

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

He has enjoyed considerable success in that role before and will be hoping to see Militao help to deliver more once welcomed into the Real fold.
