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.

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!
