Manchester United has made signing Juventus center-back Gleison Bremer a top priority this upcoming summer transfer window, reports The Mirror. The Red Devils are looking to thoroughly upgrade their defense ahead of 2024/2025 and see the 26-year-old Bremer as an ideal reinforcement.

United is well aware that their current defensive options need addressing. Veteran Jonny Evans is unlikely to have his contract renewed while question marks hang over incumbents Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, and Victor Lindelof. The club recognizes that one or two high-quality additions would strengthen backline performance and longevity.

The Old Trafford squad may have found their primary target in Bremer if the recent reports hold true. United has scouted the Brazilian national extensively in recent Juventus matches and has received glowing internal assessments. The club has admired the center-back for quite some time and believes now is the right time to make a concerted effort for his signature.

Initially moving to Juventus from Torino in 2022, Bremer has been a standout performer in Turin. He cemented his status as one of Serie A’s best defenders last campaign and recently extended his contract until 2028. However, United feels that a sizeable offer could still persuade Juventus to sell their prized asset.

The Mirror indicates that United is willing to pay upwards of £55 million to make Bremer the marquee arrival of their 2024 summer spending spree. Considering his combination of youth, track record and undeniable talent, the club views that price tag as a smart investment in their defensive future.

While prising him away from Juventus may prove difficult, United appears undeterred in their efforts to outbid competitors for Bremer’s signature. The player himself may welcome the chance to test himself in the rigorous environment of the English Premier League.

United manager Erik ten Hag has not been shy about his desires to reshape the squad in his mold this offseason. Bringing in top-class reinforcements like Bremer would send a strong statement about the club’s capabilities and ambitions moving forward under their new boss.

If Ten Hag can guarantee Bremer a starting spot and sell him on United’s project, a deal could materialize this summer. With Maguire and Varane potentially departing, the path to first-team minutes is clearer for Bremer at Old Trafford. At 26 years old, he Aligns perfectly with United’s needed balance of experience and long-term upside.
