Real Madrid is continuing to draw closer to young Porto central defender, Eder Militao, according to Portuguese media reports.
According to the same newspaper, Madrid have even gone as far as to ask his transfer price, which Oporto has set at 50 million euros.
While he has not been the focus of much media attention, Militao is considered to be one of the most promising up-and-coming defenders in world football.Typifying the modern central defender, he is tall and physically imposing, manages well in the air, is aggressive in the tackle and can control the ball well. A versatile and quick player, Porto coach Sergio Conceiçao has also played him at right back and as a central midfielder so far this season.
But the young Brazilian’s preferred position is the centre of defence, where he has settled in well since his move from Sao Paolo in the summer for seven million euros, and he is a regular starter alongside his compatriot Felipe.
