Both clubs announced the move on Thursday and the Spanish club say the 21-year-old Brazil worldwide will sign a contract until 2025 with them.

Real Madrid have completed the €50 million (£43m/$57m) signing of Eder Militao from Porto, with the defender set to link up with them on a six-year contract.

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. Militao was named as the best defender in the competition for five consecutive matches.

He will now become Madrid's first summer signing for Zinedine Zidane, after the Spanish club agreed to pay his €50m buyout clause.

Militao has played virtually every game for Porto so far in 2018/19 after making his Liga Primeira debut while still only 20 back in September.

Scientists sign petition saying that AirPods can cause cancer
Last year, Apple sold more than 28 million pairs of AirPods and more than 16 million the year prior, according to the Daily Mail . It mentions cancer, neurological disorders, and DNA damage as among the possible harms some research has linked to EMF exposure.

Militao has scored three goals for Porto this season, including one in the Champions League group-stage win over Schalke.

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

That will mean a significant profit for Porto on a player they signed previous year from Sao Paulo in his homeland.

"Prior to making the move to Portugal, Militao made a name for himself in Brazilian football".
