Bayern Munich interested in signing Tottenham target Eder Militao as David Alaba replacement
The German club sees him as a replacement for David Alaba, who is heavily linked with an exit. Militao is a ‘plan B’ for Bayern as they still remain keen on signing RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.
A report by Daily Mail last week claimed that Eder Militao is on Jose Mourinho’s transfer list. He is also linked with a return to his former club FC Porto.
But Madrid would be looking to get somewhere around the £43m sum they paid to Porto for his transfer back in 2019. Los Blancos are themselves are highly keen on signing wantaway Bayern defender David Alaba.
A good addition for Spurs?
This news comes as a blow Tottenham if they did intend on signing the 22-year-old Brazilian. Militao has just 3 league appearances this season for Madrid, where he is below Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Nacho in the pecking order.
The out-of-favour Madrid defender is also versatile as he is capable of playing at right-back, centre-back, as well as in defensive midfield. He would add depth and quality to the squad if he does join the Lilywhites.
The defender is just 22 years old and still has a lot of years of football ahead of him. But now Tottenham have Bayern Munich to worry about if they aim to land the former Porto defender.
