  • Eder Militao had been playing with Porto since signing from Brazilian club Sao Paulo at the beginning of this season

The centre-back is Real Madrid's first signing following the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager.

Meanwhile Zidane's attitude to Gareth Bale, who he also had a hard relationship with, is also going to be under intense scrutiny, especially if Bale doesn't start.

Despite Zidane replacing Santiago Solari in the hot seat in Spain, Bale has indicated he wants to see out the remainder of his career at Real.

"I'm going to repeat myself a lot here, but Gareth is ready to play".

But Mourinho says the situation with the team and club is now very different from what Zidane inherited three years ago.

Further details revealed the drop in December was the biggest since September 2009 when the economy was emerging from recession. February's retail sales report, which was scheduled for publication on Thursday, will be released on April 1.

Football fans will be able to catch a glimpse of Militao in the Champions League quarter-finals this season, after Porto advanced to the last eight with an extra-time win over Roma in the last 16. Zidane as a player was known for his wonderful vision and he had somewhat underlyingly predicted the slight downfall of the club since his departure in his first press conference back at the club. "I am counting on him like everyone else".

Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have been among those linked with a move to Madrid, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez joking on Monday, "I would like them both". "I am not here to make any lists, I am here to finish the season well, all together".

Real lie third in the LaLiga table, 12 points behind leaders Barca. Likewise Marcelo's defensive failings had led to Solari preferring youngster Sergio Reguilon at left back, but with Zidane reportedly keen to stop the Brazilian joining Juventus, Marcelo could be back in the side on Saturday.

"It's a great opportunity for him to prove how good he is, now with a new project".
