France coach Deschamps happy to see Zidane back at Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane restored old favourites for his first game since being re-appointed coach of Real Madrid as Thibaut Courtois was dropped for Keylor Navas while Isco and Marcelo both returned.

The Frenchman authorised a €50m deal to sign Porto's Eder Militao, and many more names could be set to follow suit.

The 21-year-old defender will join the club next season and has already made his full Brazil global debut.

Real Madrid have clinched a deal to sign the Brazilian defender Eder Militao, 21, from Portuguese champions FC Porto from next season, the two clubs announced on Thursday.

The 21-year-old defender will join the club next season and is already a full Brazil worldwide. He played 34 matches with the Portuguese champions, scoring three goals, including one in the group stage of the Champions League.

One of the agreements behind Zidane's return to the dugout in Madrid less than a year after quitting was understood to be more control over transfers.

The Madrid back line needs enforcement and Militao is the right man to start the enforcement as Madrid look to shuffle to their squad.

Club great Zidane was appointed as Madrid's third coach of the season earlier this week after the Spanish giants had underwhelmed under the leadership of Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari.

The defeats ended their interest in the Champions League and Copa del Rey - and left them 12 points behind leaders Barcelona in La Liga.

Real president Florentino Perez has again turned to Zidane, who stepped in for Rafa Benitez in 2016.
