Just a few minutes ago, Real Madrid have officially announced that Brazilian rightback Danilo Luiz da Silva will leave Porto to join Los Blancos for the season 2015-2016. No economic details about the agreement have been made public yet (the rumor is that the prize is, approximately, €31.5 million), although we will likely get to know more about that in the upcoming days. Danilo's first contract with Real Madrid will last until June 2021.

FC Porto themselves confirmed the deal too, announcing that Real Madrid will pay €31.5 million to sign the Brazilian right back.

Danilo, aged 23, is a great prospect that has already made his debut with Brazilian National Team. He has won a Copa Libertadores, an Under-20 World Cup and two Portuguese league championships with Porto. He will, hopefully, help Los Blancos win a lot more trophies starting next season, when he will fight for a spot with Dani Carvajal.

Welcome to Madrid, Danilo!
