Man Utd favourites to sign Gleison Bremer among Premier League clubs

Manchester United are favourites to sign Juventus star Gleison Bremer among the Premier League clubs, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Red Devils are likely to spend big on a marquee centre-back this summer and they have identified Bremer as one of their prime targets.

The club have been monitoring him for some period of time and it has been claimed that he could be available for a fee of around €60 million.

Gazzetta dello Sport (page 2) now claim that Premier League clubs are pressing to sign him and United are currently ‘in the lead’ for his services.

Man Utd could swoop for Bremer

Raphael Varane has been one of United’s main central defenders over the past three years, but he could leave when his contract expires on June 30.

The club have decided against an extension clause in his contract, considering he is the second highest earner. No talks are planned on fresh terms.

With him likely to head for the exit door, manager Erik ten Hag may want a readymade replacement over an emerging star with the room to develop.

Bremer would be an ideal candidate, having proved his credentials with the Bianconeri.

The Brazilian ace is a good ball-playing centre-back with a strong aerial and physical presence. He is good in tackles, ball recoveries and likes to clear his lines.

His all-round defensive attributes would make him a quality signing. The Bianconeri are willing to part ways with him for a ‘convincing offer‘ this summer.

The club are eyeing a transfer fee of €60m, but United could prise him away for around €50m up front with the remaining in performance-based add-ons.

Bremer, who has been described as an ‘exceptional’ star by Juventus legend Sergio Brio, has previously spoken about his dream of playing in the Premier League.
