Manchester United can now sign ‘really good’ Real Madrid star

Manchester United have a fantastic opportunity to sign Real Madrid centre-back Eder Militao during this summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils are expected to recruit a new central defender this summer after Raphael Varane confirmed his exit on a free transfer.

They are currently looking at different options in the transfer market. Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite is reportedly the top target.

The club now have the chance to land Militao, who was first linked with a move to Old Trafford during his time at Porto.

Militao had a superb debut season with the Primeira Liga outfit before his transfer to Madrid in 2019.

The Brazilian signed a new long-term contract with Los Blancos in January this year, but Mundo Deportivo (page 12) claim he is considered ‘transferable’.

Militao has made five La Liga starts this term after his serious knee injury, but manager Carlo Ancelotti has preferred Antonio Rudiger and Nacho Fernandez in the Champions League.

With the transformation of Aurelien Tchouameni as a centre-back, Ancelotti has opened the door for Militao’s exit. David Alaba is another option for the Italian.

Militao would be a superb acquisition for Man Utd

The Red Devils will lose Varane this summer. They need a quality centre-back who can seamlessly fill the position.

Militao would be a superb signing for the club, considering he is a strong ball-playing defender like Varane. He has a passing accuracy of 91 percent this term.

The Brazilian, who is ‘really good‘ in one-on-one situations according to Ancelotti, has impressed with his aerial and ground challenges and likes to clear his lines.

He is a right-sided central defender but can also operate as a right-back. He made more appearances at right-back in his career before his move to the Bernabeu.

The £60 million-rated star would provide the club with a double solution, given there is talk of Aaron Wan-Bissaka leaving the club on a cut-price deal.
