Evaluation

Éder Militão has been rock-solid in Porto’s defense which led him to gain more attention from top European clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United. His performance so far is simply amazing and he was even named the best defender in Portugal for 4 consecutive months! It’s just hard to believe that he is playing his first season in Europe straight from his home country Brazil. And with his Champions League experience, the move to a bigger club would be an ideal next step for his development. Another huge profit expected for the Portuguese side as well!
