Man Utd really like Juventus star Gleison Bremer, will cost at least €70m

Manchester United really like Juventus defender Gleison Bremer and are interested in signing him this summer, according to Calciomercato.

The Red Devils are likely to invest on a marquee centre-back in the next transfer window with the possibility of Raphael Varane heading for the exit door.

Varane’s current deal with the club expires in June this year and the hierarchy have opted against triggering an extension clause to keep him for another campaign.

Unless he is willing to accept a huge pay-cut, it seems likely that he will leave on a free transfer.

Amidst this, the club have been linked with a move for Bremer. Calciomercato claim that United ‘really like’ the player, who is among the best in his position.

Their pursuit could ‘become concrete’ this summer, but it would take at least €70 million to persuade the Bianconeri to part ways with the Brazil international.

Man Utd will need to pay premium fee for Bremer

The former Torino man recently committed his long-term future to Juventus until June 2028. This has put the Bianconeri in a strong position to negotiate this summer.

The club have suffered a mid-season slump with two points in their last four games, but they are still nine points ahead of fifth-placed Bologna in the league standings.

If the Bianconeri return to the Champions League, it is unlikely that they will negotiate on the price. United may have to meet their demands to sign the centre-back.

Bremer would be a quality acquisition for the Red Devils. He is a physically strong defender with good ball-playing ability, and would fit right into the requirements of manager Erik ten Hag.

He has had a passing success rate of 87 per cent in Serie A this term. He has won almost 60 per cent of his duels alongside 5.3 ball recoveries and four clearances per game.

Bremer has also averaged 1.6 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per outing. Juventus have recently been in a winless streak, but he has stood out with his individual performance.

It is left to be seen whether Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS will formalise the club’s interest in the Brazilian, who will turn 27 next month. His age could be a deciding factor.

Ratcliffe has reportedly questioned the club’s decision to sign players who are almost past their prime. He could lean towards purchasing a young central defender.
