Militao’s Impressive Run Of Form At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium
Militao has been a rock at the back for the Madrid giants this season and has been responsible for putting in a series of impressive displays at the heart of Los Blancos’ defence. The 24-year-old has found the back of the net on two occasions and grabbed three assists in 44 appearances for Real Madrid during this campaign on all fronts.
The Brazil international has given a good account of himself when defending inside his half as he is averaging 1.5 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 3.0 clearances per 90 minutes in La Liga. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after completing 89.4% of his attempted passes in the top tier of Spanish football (stats via whoscored).
Real Madrid Prepared To Offer Militao A New Contract: Good Move For Both Parties?
Militao has established himself as a solid presence on the defensive end of the field. He is a good tackler of the ball and can scan the danger quickly to earn the ball back for his team.
The Brazilian talent can use his strong 1.86m frame to dominate the opposition attackers in the air. He is even proficient at playing his way out from the back.
Thus, it makes sense for Los Blancos to tie him down to a new contract. At 24, Militao has his best years ahead of him. Plus, he has also proven his worth as a capable defender in Spanish football which has made him such a great asset under Carlo Ancelotti‘s stewardship at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
Hence, Militao’s contract extension will be a good move for both the player and the Madrid club. The Brazilian sensation would be able to solely concentrate on getting better on the playing field while Los Blancos can reap the dividends of keeping hold of him for the long-run.
