Real Madrid transfer news: Neymar sends warning to Florentino Perez regarding move to Real Madrid and more - January 20, 2019
Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid latest transfer news and rumours! Here are the top stories surrounding the Galacticos tonight!
#3 Graham Hunter on Militao
There were reports of Real Madrid closing the deal for Eder Militao with Porto but it seems like those reports were merely stories. According to Graham Hunter, Manchester United are still in the hunt for him.
He revealed that the Red Devils are in love with his pace and physicality. As a result, they will attempt to sign him – if not in the in the winter, then in the summer.
“They like his speed, they like the simplicity of his game, they like his physique and it seems clear that he won’t be much longer at Porto," Hunter said.
“If it doesn’t happen in this window, I would expect it to happen in the summer for sure barring a very bad injury on the part of the player.”
Hunter then admitted that the Brazilian had been scouted by numerous clubs before but Porto were the ones who brought him out of Brazil.
Even then, however, the top clubs have continued watching him and they are now impressed with how he has adapted to European football in the Portuguese and the Champions league - something that is quite challenging for South American talents.
“He’s a player who’s been scouted by top clubs in Europe last summer, but Porto had been prepared to take him out of Sao Paolo and obviously the top clubs have continued to scout him.
“They’re now watching him play Champions League players and play for Porto at the top of the Portuguese League.
“And they like even more what they see now he’s in Europe, he’s taken that step, he’s entered that adaptation process which can be quite difficult for South Americans.”
