Militao has signed a six-year deal at the Bernabeu, with Madrid confirming he has committed his future to the club until 2025.

The Spanish giants are looking to rebuild under Zidane, who led them to three consecutive Champions League titles before leaving the club in the summer.

He rejoined with them 12 points off the pace in La Liga and on the back of a humiliating Champions League defeat by Ajax at the last-16 stage.

But they have moved quickly to add reinforcements, with reports in Spain claiming Madrid were keen to wrap the deal up before Militao's buy-out clause increased from £43m to £64m in July.

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

Still only 21, he began his career with Sao Paulo in his native Brazil before moving to Porto last summer.

He has scored three goals and picked up two assists in 34 appearances for the Portuguese side, with his displays catching the eye of Madrid.

The deal comes amid reports that Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen is among Madrid's summer transfer targets as Zidane eyes a summer overhaul at the Bernabeu.
