With the season ending triumphantly with the conquest of the Decimocuarta and Liga 35, it’s time for the market. To think about Madrid in the coming years, not only from the outside, but also in the continuity of the pillars of the locker room that have given Real Madrid the glory of a new double. One of those who will pass through the noble zone of Valdebebas in the coming days to sign a new contract is Eder Militao. As AS learned, the Brazilian central defender has closed his renewal until 2028 and all that remains is to close the final details for the defender to stamp his signature. Militao, 24, will prolong his relationship with the Madrid entity for three more seasons than he signed when he arrived at the white club in the summer of 2019.
The defender has been a fundamental piece in Ancelotti’s scheme. This season Militao faced the challenge of rebuilding, together with Alaba, the axis of the White defense after the departure of another legendary duo, the one formed by Varane and Ramos. The pairing of the new couple between the Brazilian and the Austrian was instantaneous. The progression of the paulista skyrocketed in the final stretch of last season, when the injuries gave him the prominence that he had been deprived of until then. He went on to be a player with sporadic appearances to a pivotal piece with convincing performances. He is undisputed in the European champion team.
He arrived at Madrid in the summer of 2019 from Porto, who received 50 million euros for his transfer. That figure made him the most expensive defender in the history of Real Madrid. He arrived as a player with projection practically unknown to the general public and now his name is recited at once in Ancelotti’s eleven.
This season he has played 50 games, all of them as a starter, and has scored two goals. He already has 91 appearances wearing the white shirt, with which He has won this Champions League, two Leagues and two Spanish Super Cups. He was already an international when he arrived, but in these three years he has established himself in Tite’s calls. He is on the Verdeamarela roster for friendlies against South Korea and Japan and on the horizon is his first participation in a World Cup. He will do it as a madridista, which will be until 2028.
