Real Madrid have agreed to sign defender Eder Militao from Porto at the end of the season for his buy-out clause of 50m euros (£42.7m).

The right footed player, who can fill in at either right back or in central defense, has signed a six-year deal to take him to Real Madrid until the end of June 2025 and is thought to have cost in the region of 50 million euros (1 euro = 1.13 U.S. dollars).

Rodrygo, who is also set to join Real Madrid in June and Vinicius, who is already considered as a vital member of the team, are the other two players without European citizenship. He has also played regularly in the Champions League, helping Porto reach the quarter finals for the first time since 2015. Militao was named as the best defender in the competition for five consecutive matches.
