Very little has been spoken about how important Eder Militao is to the current Real Madrid setup. The Brazilian’s integration into Los Blancos‘ dynamics was so seamless that one would think he was born and brought up at the academy.

When news of Antonio Rudiger’s signing came in, many thought that Militao would be pushed to the bench. Yet, he has held onto his spot with rock-solid performances and limited the new signing to the bench.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid are preparing all the documents for Eder Militao’s new contract. The new deal will see him commit to the Spanish champions until June 2028 with a release clause of €1 billion.

The two parties reached a verbal agreement back in July and it was only a matter of time before the club officially announced the extension. With matters speeding up now, one can expect confirmation in the coming days.

The centre-back signed for Real Madrid in 2019 from FC Porto. His current deal with the club sees him at the Bernabeu until 2025, meaning that the new contract will see him commit a further three years.

This season, Militao has started five games for the men in white. He was ruled out of action during the team’s 3-0 win over Celtic in the first week of September but made his return in two weeks during the Madrid derby.

So far this season, the Brazilian averages 1.5 interceptions, 1.5 tackles, two clearances and four duels won per game. Heading into the busy month of October, he will be a regular and crucial part of the starting lineup and will look to maintain his high level.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
