Real Madrid have completed the €50 million (£43m/$57m) signing of Eder Militao from Porto, with the defender set to link up with them on a six-year contract.

The 21-year-old Brazilian has joined for an undisclosed transfer fee following a terrific breakthrough season in the Primeira Liga.

Real Madrid have confirmed their first signing since the return of Zinedine Zidane as head coach. Eder Militao is confirmed to have signed for Real Madrid.

The centre-back, who started his professional career with Sao Paulo before moving to Porto in August 2018, has been linked with a number of European clubs in recent months.

A grand jury subpoenaed records from two smartphone developers, The New York Times reported Wednesday , citing two anonymous sources familiar with the matter.

Militao has had an excellent first season in Europe, becoming a key part of the Porto squad and starting 20 league and seven Champions League matches, scoring three goals in the process.

Militao, who can also play at right-back and has been capped once by Brazil, reinforces a Real defence that has often been diminished by injuries this season.

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.
