Eder Militao has praised Carlo Ancelotti for helping him reach a new level this season at Real Madrid.
After the departures of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane during the summer, Militao has gone from first reserve to undisputed start at the Santiago Bernabeu and has justified that status with some outstanding achievements.
The 23-year-old has made 18 appearances in La Liga this season, helped his side to the top of the table and stayed together with summer signing David Alaba, and he credits his improvement to Ancelotti’s hard work.
“I live a dream in Madrid,” Militao told AS. “Ancelotti has been very important to me, he has given me the confidence that every player needs.
“I just try to continue every day. I have very beautiful moments ahead of me with Real Madrid and with Tite’s national team.”
Militao has played 39 of Real’s last 40 games, more than any other player, and he has tasted defeat only three times in that time.
Despite Militao’s impressive form, Real’s lack of depth at midfield continues to be a concern for those in charge at the Bernabeu. Behind the Brazilian and Alaba are only the miller Nacho Fernandez and 24-year-old Jesus Vallejo, who are expected to leave the club during the summer.
The club is looking closely at Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
AS states that Militao’s rise has seen Real dampen their interest in Rudiger, who is still their preferred midfielder but has been pushed down on the priority list in favor of moves for both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
Once Real have completed the hunt for these two, successfully or otherwise, they will turn their attention to Rudiger, who is also attracting interest from both Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.
