£44.7million to trigger the release clause

Chelsea keen on beating Man Utd chief Ed Woodward to type of player he 'likes to sign'

CHELSEA are keen on battling Manchester United to sign Porto defender Eder Militao.


According to transfer expert Duncan Castles, the 20-year-old Brazilian is just the kind of player Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward 'likes to sign'.

That's because he is young, tipped for a bright future and whose value will rise.

Jose Mourinho has proposed a move for the youngster, who can play at right-back and centre-back, but Chelsea are keen on him too.

Castles told the Transfer Window podcast: "One of the alternative options that Mourinho has proposed is Eder Militao at FC Porto, who is a young Brazilian centre-back, more of the profit that Woodward likes to sign - i.e. players who are developing their game and young and he sees that their value on the transfer books will remain high for many years at the club.


"It’s an interesting parallel with Diogo Dalot, who they got in the summer. Now he’s got over his initial injury problems, he’s showing his ability as an attacking full-back.

"But I think you can also see he’s quite raw from a defensive point of view. His positioning against Arsenal, he was often getting caught out of position and having to rescue himself with his pace, that he was able to do.

"But Militao has a release clause of 50m euros (£45million) at Porto, which is probably negotiable down depending on interest from other clubs. Chelsea I’m told are also keen on him."

However, Express Sport understands Mourinho is on a collision course with his United bosses over the club's lack of transfer action.






He costs about half of what de Ligt will probably go for, less than half (by far) what the Poison Dwarf wants for Koulibaly (£135m! he is on dwarf crack)

I  prefer 

Milan Skriniar

Lucas Hernández ( 2 for one as he benches Alonso at LB instantly and is also a superb CB)

Dayot Upamecano

Benjamin Pavard (another 2 for 1, as he is also a great RB)

Alessio Romagnoli

José Giménez

Rúben Dias

Thilo Kehrer

Manuel Akanji


Eder Militao

I do rate him over



Jonathan Tah

Nikola Milenkovic (maybe)

Ibrahima Konaté (atm)

Malang Sarr

Panagiotis Retsos

Dan-Axel Zagadou

Jules Koundé


I also highly recco a 18yo (turns 19 on December 30th) Jean-Clair Todibo from Toulouse

I think he is a potential superstar

The write ups Ive read today all are very good about the lad. I can't see a downside to him.

Looks like with all the links ourselves and Manure have we are both after a CB. Maybe the board wont give 30+'s over a year and Luiz won;t have it.
