A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Marca claimed that Real Madrid defender Eder Militao has penned a new contract until 2028. It is understood that the Brazilian centre-back has put pen to paper on a new, long-term deal with Los Blancos.

Militao’s Impressive Run Of Form At The Santiago Bernabeu Stadium

Militao had a successful campaign in the Spanish capital as he helped the Madrid giants do the La Liga and the UEFA Champions League double. The Sertaozinho-born talent made 50 appearances for Real Madrid last season, netting two goals and securing three assists in the process across multiple competitions.

The 24-year-old was a rock at the back after he averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 3.1 clearances per game in La Liga. He was even accurate when distributing the ball from inside his half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 89.3% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).

Militao Pens New Deal With Real Madrid Until 2028: Good Move For Everyone Involved?

Militao is a good tackler of the ball and can earn the ball back for his team on the defensive end of the pitch. He usually clears the danger when the opposition are on the front foot and is proficient at playing his way out from the back.

The Brazilian defensive ace can use his strong 1.86m to dominate the opposition in the air and can even make a few important blocks inside his penalty box. He has even developed a winning mindset during his time at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Hence, Militao’s decision to pen a new contract with Los Blancos will be a good move for both the player and the Madrid club as they look to collectively tase even more success over the next few years. At 24, the former Liga Portugal defender will only get better and would have a great resale value in the future.

The Brazilian can now focus on improving his form on the field while Carlo Ancelotti can reap the dividends of having a centre-back like him in his squad for the long run.
