Manchester United ready to pay the asking price for Gleison Bremer

Manchester United would be prepared to pay Gleison Bremer’s release clause to sign him from Juventus to bolster their defence.

According to Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness, Manchester United could show intent to pay Gleison Bremer’s asking price to sign the Brazilian international in the summer. The Juventus star has a €60 million release clause which activates only in 2025, but the Red Devils would like to bring the move forward by a year.

Manchester United ready to pay Gleison Bremer clause

Gleison Bremer could leave Juventus in the summer, particularly should the Bianconeri finalise a move for 21-year-old Italian international Riccardo Calafiori from Bologna. Inter Milan are also keen on the defender, but Juventus could ready the funds of around €30 million with the sale of the 27-year-old Brazilian international.

Bremer has had the interest of Manchester United for quite a while now, and the Red Devils are willing to make their move. Incidentally, Erik ten Hag’s side are keen to pay his release clause, which stands at €60 million but will only activated in 2025.

Manchester United are willing to bring that deal forward by a year and test Juventus’ resolve. Bremer remains a priority target for the club, with INEOS eager to strengthen the backline with some statement signings. The 27-year-old defender might also show eagerness to join the Premier League side should a move materialise.

Manchester United had planned to pay less than the €60 million price tag, but now they might have sensed an opportunity to bring the 27-year-old defender to Old Trafford. Hence, they could open talks with Juventus, who will likely sell should they get the window opened for bringing Calafiori.

Manchester United’s defensive plans

The Red Devils are about to enter a pivotal summer window that could see them revamp their backline. Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans will likely leave when their deals expire in the summer, while Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire’s futures are also cast into doubt.

Hence, they might have to bring at least two new centre-backs, probably one or two full-backs, to set a new tone in their defensive ranks. Such a recruitment strategy will require plenty of money, and should they succeed, other areas of the pitch could suffer in terms of transfers.
