Manchester United are still in the hunt for Porto defender Eder Militao despite Real Madrid's interest, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly still in the hunt for Porto defender Eder Militao despite strong suggestions that the Brazil international has already agreed to join Real Madrid.

Militao, who started his professional career with Sao Paulo before moving to Porto in August 2018, has been linked with a number of European clubs in recent weeks.

Madrid are believed to be in the driving seat for the 21-year-old, and it was recently reported that the European champions have a 'verbal agreement' with the centre-back that he will move to the Bernabeu at the end of the season.

Militao's agent Giuliano Bertolucci, meanwhile, recently claimed that his client could join the Spanish giants this summer.

However, according to the Daily Mail, United are still in the hunt for the defender and will battle Madrid for his signature at the end of the season.

Militao has a release clause of £45m inserted into his current deal, but that figure rises to £70m after July 15.
