Official: Militão Extends Stay at Real Madrid,

Real Madrid fans can rejoice! Star defender Eder Militão has put pen to paper on a new deal, committing his future to the Spanish giants until 2028.

Arriving from FC Porto in 2019 for a hefty €50 million, Militão’s journey at the Bernabéu began with cautious optimism. 

After a period of adjustment, however, the Brazilian blossomed into a pillar of strength, earning the trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti and emerging as the leader of Madrid’s formidable backline.

With his original contract due to expire this summer, whispers of an extension had swirled for months.

Now, the speculation can be laid to rest, as Real Madrid have officially confirmed the highly anticipated pact.

“Real Madrid CF and Éder Militão have agreed to extend their player’s contract with the club until 30 June 2028,” reads the official statement, sending waves of delight through the Madrid faithful.

Unfortunately, a cruel twist of fate saw Militão sidelined on the first day of the season, rupturing his ACL in the opening clash against Athletic Club.

Despite the blow, his recovery has been nothing short of impressive, and whispers suggest the center-back could be back in action by the end of February, ready to resume his defensive reign.

Militão’s extension signals a clear message of intent from Real Madrid, solidifying their defensive core for years to come.

The Bernabéu faithful can rest assured that their Brazilian rock will continue to stand tall in the heart of defense, ready to weather any storm and bring more glory to the Spanish capital.
