Premier League giants Manchester United have made contact with the representatives of FC Porto defender Eder Militao.
This is according to the publication from UOL Esporte.
Brazilian international defender Eder Militao has been heavily linked with the Red Devils with reports claiming that Manchester United want to sign him when the transfer window reopens at the start of next month.
Manchester United will have to pay the £45m release clause in his FC Porto contract to secure his transfer from the club.
Eder Militao has been a regular fixture in the FC Porto team this season.
FC Porto are the Portuguese top flight leaders with the best defensive and attacking record and Eder Militao has been a big part of that.
The 20-year-old also contributed immensely to the FC Porto side that has qualified for the first knockout stage of the Champions League this season.
Eder Militao joined the Portuguese giants from Brazilian Serie A side Sao Paulo this summer.
The Brazilian star is a utility player who can play as a centre back, in defensive midfield and as a right-back.
Eder Militao became a full Brazilian international earlier this year when he made his debut for Brazil against El Salvador in September.
