Zinedine Zidane Completes First Signing In Second Spell As Real Madrid Boss

He was only reappointed as Real Madrid boss mere days ago but Zinedine Zidane has completed his first signing in his second spell at Los Blancos.

The 13-time European champions have just confirmed the €50 million capture of Porto defender Éder Militão, who has signed a six-year deal with the Santiago Bernabeu club.

Both Manchester United and Juventus were linked with the 21-year old but Real have stolen march, paid his release clause and sealed the deal.

Zinedine Zidane Has 'Brutally Sidelined' Vinicius Junior After Fall-Out

published at13 days ago

Porto only signed Militão last summer, paying around £6 million to snap him up from Brazilian club Sao Paulo. Once again the Portuguese outfit will be making massive profit on a player they bought for dirt-cheap.

Predominantly a central defender but also able to play as a right-back or defensive midfielder, Militão has made 33 appearances in all competitions for Porto this season.

His fine form at club level has also seen him make his debut for Brazil back in September and he will now join compatriots Vinicius Jr, Casemiro and Marcelo in the Spanish capital.

Militão's arrival looks set to be the first of many in an expected drastic overhaul of the Real squad.

It's said that president Florentino Perez has handed Zidane a huge transfer budget of £300 million to improve the current team - a kitty that could be used to bring in a Galactico for the first time since 2014.
