"His speed, positioning and anticipation are his greatest assets, while he is also strong in the air".

"These qualities have been on consistent display since his arrival at Porto last summer as he has adapted swiftly to the European game".

The defender has made one appearance for Brazil and can play at centre back, full back or defensive midfield.

Militao was signed by Porto from Sao Paulo in August 2018.

Militao only arrived in European football during the summer of 2018.

The Blancos have endured a hard campaign as a result, with Zidane becoming the third man to fill their managerial hot-seat.
