Real Madrid agree deal for defender Eder Militao from Porto

Real Madrid agree deal for defender Eder Militao from Porto

Following Zinedine Zidane's decision to come back to the club, it essentially ends any hope the Colombian global had of getting a second chance with Los Blancos.

Football fans will be able to catch a glimpse of Militao in the Champions League quarter-finals this season, after Porto advanced to the last eight with an extra-time win over Roma in the last 16.

"Zidane is ideal for Madrid and this is flawless for himself for another great opportunity to show how good he is with a new project after the fantastic things he has achieved in recent years", Mourinho was quoted as saying by El Chiringuito while reacting on Zidane's appointment. "I felt I deserved it but the manager makes the decisions".

Zidane's return suggests that Madrid president Florentino Perez has given the Frenchman assurances that signings will be made this summer - assurances that he couldn't give back in May when Zidane stepped down from the job.

But after Zidane stepped down as boss and Cristiano Ronaldo left, Bale stayed put in the hope of filling the void up front.

Barnett told Sky Sports News earlier this month his client's treatment has been "nothing short of a disgrace".

Asked on BBC Radio 5 Live if he can see Bale in Madrid next season, Barnett said: "Yeah, why not".

"If that doesn't work out, then we'll talk again".

Because the Real Madrid back line is the most free scoring in the league so far. At the moment he's very happy.

"I think it is flawless and fantastic", the former Chelsea boss said, even as he was quick to add he was never disappointed by Madrid's decision not to hire him. "He's still got a great talent".
