Real Madrid agree €50m deal for first summer signing under Zidane

Mourinho had said in January that being linked in the press with a return to former clubs Real Madrid and Inter Milan was a "tremendous honour".

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is hoping to secure huge transfers for three global stars as he seeks to help the club recover from their disappointing season.

Real Madrid have announced the signing of defender Eder Militao from Porto. Flying Betis left-back Junior Firpo is under consideration with Marcelo still likely to leave but Madrid could recall Achram Hakifi a year early from his loan spell at Dortmund.

But Zidane has chosen a Bernabeu return less than a year after his departure.

Real Madrid have completed the €50 million signing of Eder Militao from Porto, with the defender set to link up with them on a six-year contract.

The 21-year-old will provide competition for veteran defender Sergio Ramos and World Cup victor Raphael Varane next season, as Madrid look to refresh an ageing squad under Zidane's leadership.

Militao: new Real Madrid signing

The 21-year-old defender will join the club next season and has already made his full Brazil global debut.

Interestingly, the centre-half, who also doubles as a right-back, featured 20 times for Porto in the Portuguese topflight this campaign, netting two goals along with two assists. It stands out for its speed, placement and ability to anticipate.

Militao only arrived in European football during the summer of 2018.

Calderon revealed he is not in agreement with Perez, which he believes is a belief shared among key figures in the Madrid dressing room.
