Militao joined Porto from Sao Paulo last year for a fee of around €7m, completing 29 appearances for the club and scoring three goals.

The youngster spent a fully successful and promising year at Porto consequently arousing various interests across Europe. Real Madrid agreed to pay the €50m fee for the Brazilian defender, officializing their new reinforcement for the 2019/20 La Liga campaign months before his move to the Spanish capital.

2. Oliver Torres

Torres joined Porto permanently in 2017 for a €20m fee from Atletico Madrid following his previous connection with the club, having represented the Dragons on loan for two consecutive seasons back in 2014.

The 24-year-old featured inconsistently 146 times for Sergio Conceicao's side, scoring 12 goals while assisting 21 times.

During his time wearing blue and white, he achieved the NOS League in the 2017/18 season and the Super Cup in 2018/19.

Atletico Madrid officialised the 29-year-old's three-year deal with Los Colchoneros on July 3.

5. Free agents

For Brahimi, it hasn't all been plain-sailing as it has been for his former teammates. 

The Algerian international also became a free agent on June 30 upon the expiration of his contract after being linked with Porto for five years. Despite diverse interests from clubs with the likes of West Ham, Arsenal and Roma, he is yet to put pen to paper in signing for a new club.
