Manchester united Finally Join the pursuit of Militao the Porto Defender (£42).
Manchester United will go ‘head to head with Real Madrid and Liverpool for Porto’s £42million right-back Eder Militao’.
The 20-year-old Brazilian is in excellent form in the Portuguese league and the Champions League this season and is starting to attract major interest.
Eder only joined Porto from Brazilian club Sao Paulo back in the summer but his release clause of £42.5m is already looking enticing to Europe’s elite.And, according to The Sun , United have joined Real and Liverpool in the race to sign him.
United had the chance to sign Eder for a bargain £3m back in the summer but then-manager Jose Mourinho decided he wasn’t of interest.
There would have been work permit complications to overcome back then but now Eder has been capped by Brazil, that would be less of an issue.
Porto would like Eder to extend his contract with them, despite agreeing a five-year deal last summer, because they want to increase his release clause.
