Manchester United lose out to Real Madrid in the race to sign Porto centre-back Eder Militao, according to a report.

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.

He will now become Madrid's first summer signing for Zinedine Zidane, after the Spanish club agreed to pay his €50m buyout clause. Militao was named as the best defender in the competition for five consecutive matches.

He has made 34 appearances this season and helped Portuguese champions into the Champions League quarter-finals.

House approves measure calling for Mueller report to be made public
Despite the House's vote on Thursday, the decision of how much of Mueller's report becomes public still rests in Barr's hands. Justin Amash, R-Mich., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Thomas Massie, R-Ky. and Paul Gosar, R- Ariz.) voting "present".

"A versatile footballer, Militao plays largely as a centre-back although he has also spent time at right-back. Qualities that he has worn since his arrival last summer at Oporto, where he has shown a rapid adaptation to European football".

The 21-year-old has impressed for Porto, since arriving in a €4m (£3.5m) deal from Sao Paulo last summer.

He will have seen out less than 12 months of that agreement before heading to Madrid.

A man who made his senior worldwide debut for Brazil in September 2018 will join a defensive unit in Spain which has been far from watertight this season.
