Porto’s Eder Militao has ‘huge future’ – Iker Casillas

Porto defender and reported Real Madrid target Eder Militao has a ‘huge future’ ahead of him, according to teammate Iker Casillas.

The 20-year-old, who has also been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, is said to have a €50m release clause which will increase in €75m in the middle of July.

The Brazilian only joined Porto this summer in a €4m deal from Sao Paulo and is primarily a right-back but is equally comfortable playing in the centre of defence or in a deep-lying midfield role.

“He has a lot of quality and eager to learn,” Casillas told Onda Cero.

“He only arrived at the club this summer but he has adapted really well and his versatility is key, he is a fundamental player for us.

“He is a good guy who is improving a lot in a short space of time, so he has a huge future ahead of him.”
