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.

In a brief statement in Real Madrid's official website, the Los Blancos confirmed that the defender has penned a six-year deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, starting from June 30.

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

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

"He has been named the best defender in the league for the last five months in a row".

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.

"His speed, positioning and anticipation are his greatest assets, while he is also strong in the air".

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.
