Danilo Luiz da Silva (Bicas, Brazil, 15-07-1991) will be contracted with Real Madrid until 30 June 2021. Aged 23, he is already a regular member of the Brazilian squad.

He won the Copa Libertadores there in 2011, and scored the decisive goal in the final against Peñarol. In 2012 he made the step up to European football by joined Porto where he established himself as one of the most influential players in world football.
