Eder Militao's highlights show Real Madrid have signed a future world-class player

Eder Militao is a versatile defender, good both in defence and attack

It's clear that change is coming for Real Madrid.

Los Blancos have had a dismal season and decided to restore Zinedine Zidane as manager earlier this week.

It was reported that he had been given £300 million so he can overhaul the squad.

And he hasn't wasted any time in making his first addition.

It was confirmed earlier on Wednesday that Real Madrid have signed Eder Militao from Porto.

The young Brazilian defender only signed for the Portuguese club in 2018 for £5 million.

But, after just 33 appearances, Real Madrid were convinced to sign him for €50 million and he has signed a contract until 2025.

Little is known about Eder given his lack of experience in European football.

But Real Madrid raved about him in their statement confirming his signing.

Zinedine Zidane rejoined Real Madrid earlier this week

“Eder Gabriel Militao is a new Real Madrid player until 2025," their statement read.

“The defender, who will join next season, is 21 years old and is an international with the Brazilian team.

“He comes from Porto, where in his first season he has become one of the main protagonists of the Portuguese League.

“He has been named the best defender of the championship for five consecutive months.

Eder Militao is Zidane's first signing since rejoining Real Madrid

“A multi-purpose player, Militao plays central, although he has also occupied the right-back position.

“He stands out for his speed, positioning and ability to anticipate danger. In addition, he has a good aerial game.”

And highlights of him in action for Porto shows he is an exceptional defender.

Although naturally a centre-back, he has the technical ability necessary to also be successful at right-back and at defensive-midfield.

Eder may well be young, but he clearly has the talent to establish himself as a key cog in Real Madrid's defence.
