Cândido Costa backs Danilo for Real Madrid
Former FC Porto coach, Cândido Costa has spoken about the scheduled departure of Danilo to Real Madrid next season. Costa is unsurprised to see Danilo moving on after three full seasons at the Estádio do Dragão and expects the former Santos full-back to be a success in Madrid.
Costa told A Bola: "I have no doubt that Danilo will be in the first team at Real Madrid. The club would not have paid this much to leave a player on the bench. If he reaches his normal level he will be a first-team player."
