In a brief statement in Real Madrid'sofficial website, the Los Blancos confirmed that the defender has penned a six-year deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, starting from June 30.
"He has been named the best defender in the league for the last five months in a row".
"Multi-purpose player, Militao plays central, although he has also occupied the right-back position".
Militao becomes the first addition made during Zinedine Zidane's second reign in the Spanish capital, with the Frenchman having moved quickly to land a top target upon returning to Real.
Militao has scored three goals for Porto this season, including one in the Champions League group-stage win over Schalke. It stands out for its speed, placement and ability to anticipate.
That will mean a significant profit for Porto on a player they signed a year ago from Sao Paulo in his homeland. "Qualities that he has worn since his arrival last summer at Oporto, where he has shown a rapid adaptation to European football".
