Man Utd ‘insist’ on agreeing deal for powerful 26yo star, club want €100m

Posted by

Calciomercato reports that Manchester United is adamant in acquiring Gleison Bremer, a center-back for Juventus, at the end of the current campaign.

With Raphael Varane potentially going on a free transfer, the Red Devils are expected to sign a marquee centre defender this summer.

The club has chosen not to activate a 12-month extension clause for the Frenchman, whose current £350,000-per-week contract expires on June 30.

The hierarchy has not yet begun negotiations on a pay reduction for a renewal. At the completion of the current campaign, the former Real Madrid player may become a free agent.

One potential replacement has been identified as Bremer. The Red Devils are reportedly adamant about signing him this summer from the Bianconeri, according to Calciomercato.

He possesses “all the characteristics” that United is seeking for, according to the source, but he could be expensive because he recently inked a new contract that runs through June 2028.

With his contract having only been extended in December, Juventus has set a high asking price of €100 million for the Brazilian star and may not take anything less.

Bremer is unlikely to cost United €100 million.

Jim Ratcliffe just consented to own a 25 percent minority ownership in the team. Following the Premier League’s approval of the agreement, he will assume command of the football operations.

The British entrepreneur is keen to cut both the team’s average age and salary. Later in the year, players like Christian Eriksen and Casemiro might be sold.

Ratcliffe has also expressed doubts about the team’s extravagant transfer spending. We believe that the club will take greater care in their approach this summer.

Even if money might be available, the team might not choose to overpay for any player.

Bremer’s strong ball-playing skills, athletic attributes, and aerial presence in the box make him a valuable addition; yet, he will turn 27 in less than a month.

Simply put, we don’t see Ratcliffe giving €100 million to sign a contract. Instead, attention might be directed towards landing Lille’s sensation Leny Yoro, for instance.

As he approaches the last year of his contract in July, Yoro is valued at €60 million. With his enormous potential, the 18-year-old might be viewed as a fantastic long-term signing.
