Real Madrid considering Eder Militao sale

Real Madrid might part ways with 26-year-old Brazilian international Eder Militao in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Eder Militao might not be a Real Madrid player heading into the 2024/25 season. The reigning La Liga champions are mulling over parting ways with the 26-year-old defender in the summer transfer window.

Eder Militao and his Real Madrid journey

Eder Militao has been a pivotal figure for Real Madrid since arriving from FC Porto in a deal worth €50 million in July 2019. The Brazilian international had to bide his time before becoming a mainstay at the back for Los Blancos, as Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane were the first-choice central defenders during his debut season.

However, the 26-year-old has come leaps and bounds since becoming the undisputed first-choice centre-back for Real Madrid. He is also a mainstay at the back for the Brazilian national side, turning out 30 times for the Selecao. However, a long-term knee injury has hampered Eder Militao’s 2023/24 campaign thus far.

The former FC Porto defender has managed only 508 minutes of game time in 12 appearances across all competitions thus far. However, despite barely featuring in the 2023/24 campaign, the idea of Militao leaving Real Madrid in the summer transfer window has been a non-issue, until now.

What next?

The report by Mundo Deportivo has made surprising claims that Real Madrid might listen to offers for the 26-year-old Brazilian international in the summer transfer window. The report mentions Aurelien Tchouameni’s ability to play as a centre-back as one of the reasons for the reigning La Liga champions’ stance over selling Eder Militao.

Meanwhile, the Merengues are scouring the market for a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window, with Leny Yoro among their prospective targets. However, the idea of parting ways with Militao seems preposterous, considering the reasons in the article about Aurelien Tchouameni and Rodrygo.

It will be surprising to see Real Madrid actually entertaining any offers for Militao in the summer transfer window. So, it will be interesting to see what the future has in store for the 26-year-old Brazilian international in the coming weeks.
