A statement on Madrid’s website read: “Real Madrid C. F. and FC Porto have reached an agreement over the transfer of Danilo, he will join the club next season and has a contract until 30 June 2021.”

Louis van Gaal had reportedly been after the right back, who has 13 caps for Brazil, to continue his rebuild of the squad that he inherited from David Moyes.

Antonio Valencia has filled the position at full back in the last five games in all competitons, whilst Paddy McNair and Rafael have also played there this season.

The Dutchman has only recently reverted to playing four at the back, preferring to play a 5-3-2 with wing backs earlier in the season, and he will look towards other targets after Madrid’s announcement.
