In less than four months, Brazilian defender Éder Militão from São Paulo has become a key player in the central defense of FC Porto. This led to speculation that linked him to various major clubs in Europe, including Chelsea and Manchester United.
However, according to his agent Ulisses Jorge, this is nothing new, but still no one has moved … yet.
"All of these clubs were already interested in Éder in São Paulo. No one came to me since the player moved to Porto. "
So Éder has a clear intention to focus on the task he has to do and to do his best to help his team maintain the dominance of the country and perhaps make a deep run in the Champions League.
"Éder is very calm, he is happy in Porto and has nothing but Porto to think about.
"When Éder was in Brazil we had the opportunity to vote and we chose Porto. It is a very strong club, one of the best to make players in Europe and champions of Portugal. We have decided on these premises, and it has been proved that this was the most correct decision.
"Look at the case of Casemiro, who left São Paulo, went to Real Madrid, went to Porto and became the player he is today – one of the best players in Real Madrid and the Brazilian team. And with Éder, I think it will be the same. "

If all goes well, we'll soon see Militão marching in the seats of a big club like Chelsea. But maybe not yet.
