Ratcliffe leading race to seal his 1st Man Utd signing, he’s a dream Martinez partner

Posted by

This week marked the first time since November that Manchester United had won back-to-back Premier League games.

Erik ten Hag’s recent triumph involved a 3-0 victory over West Ham, making it nearly the ideal day at work.

Although this was United’s first clean sheet in five Premier League games, let’s look at some potential new recruits for Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s squad.

Man United’s pursuit of a central defender

In the competition for Juventus central defender Gleison Bremer, Man United “are above all” other teams, according to a report from the Italian publication Calciomercato.

Juve has the Brazilian under contract until 2028, and the team is eager to hold onto him.

Nevertheless, it’s said that the Old Lady might be persuaded to sell their standout defender for a sum above £60 million.

The ideal companion for Lisandro Martinez

Man United’s top centre back by far is Lisandro Martinez; in fact, the team’s official website wrote an article titled “Why everybody loves Lisandro Martinez.” The Red Devils faithful wouldn’t replace him with many, if any, defenders in the world while he’s healthy.

However, since suffering a season-ending injury in April, the 26-year-old has only started seven Premier League games this year. Following his comeback to the team, United has won their last two games; however, he sustained an injury against West Ham in the most recent game that will keep him out for eight weeks.

The former Ajax player will be hoping for a new beginning next season, and by then, Bremer might be his partner. The Brazilian has been brilliant for Juventus this year, and his most recent showing against Inter showed just what he is capable of.

As you can see from his nine clearances, three tackles, and the fact that he plays for a team that has 11 clean sheets in 23 Serie A games, Bremer is a guy who just loves to defend.

This puts him in the same ballpark as Martinez, who according to FBref finished in the top 10% of the Premier League in terms of tackles last season. Additionally, Bremer won six of his eight aerial duels, demonstrating his dominance in the air—an important quality to have next to the number six, who is ranked in the bottom 93% of aerial winners.

Bremer’s touches and pass accuracy demonstrate how at ease the South American pair is in the possession game, and Martinez’s passes completed last season were among the top 17 percent in the Europa League.

But United’s ability to move the ball and create attacking opportunities—Bremer completed one crucial pass against Inter, and the Red Devils average 7.15 passes into the final third of games—will be what sets them apart.

Their physical characteristics do, however, differ; Bremer is 6 feet 2 while the World Cup winner is 5 feet 9 inches tall. According to journalist Siavoush Fallahi, the Brazilian is also renowned for his “speed and strength,” which will go very well with Martinez.

In general, Bremer’s signing would give United, like Martinez’s, a great deal more control both in and out of the ball. For the Argentine, the 26-year-old would be the ideal companion.
