Real Madrid agree deal for defender Eder Militao from Porto


The centre-back is the Spanish giants' first signing since Zinedine Zidane returned to the club as coach for a second spell this week.

But Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, has insisted this week that his client wants to end his career with the 13-time European champions.

"I think it is ideal and fantastic", the former Chelsea boss said, even as he was quick to add he was never disappointed by Madrid's decision not to hire him. "I am not here to make any lists, I am here to finish the season well, all together".

"The players, including those who have played less, are committed". But when you play against this team you are anxious about the collective.

Isco never started a single La Liga match under Solari while Marcelo increasingly found his place at left-back taken by the 22-year-old Sergio Reguilon. "They're like defining moments", he said.

"So comparisons? Well we're not challenging to win the league this year but we are challenging for the other two trophies".

"As a player he was unbelievable, as a coach he has won everything".

He has made 34 appearances this season and helped Portuguese champions into the Champions League quarter-finals.

"I think Jose Mourinho would have been a step backwards, there was a lot of problems and controversy when he was here".

"Why would they need to give me an explanation?", Mourinho responded to a question if Real Madrid offered him an explanation after missing the managerial role.

"So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way".
