Manchester United are reportedly leading the charge to secure the services of Juventus’s defensive stalwart, Gleison Bremer.

The 26-year-old Brazilian, celebrated as Serie A’s Best Defender in the 2021-22 season, has been pinpointed by United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, as the perfect reinforcement for the team’s backline, according to Italian media outlet Calciomercato.

Despite his recent contract extension with Juventus until 2028, discussions between the clubs are anticipated, with United purportedly prepared to meet the Turin club’s £59 million valuation.

Bremer’s remarkable journey from Atletico Mineiro to becoming a cornerstone of Juventus’s defense has caught the eye of Old Trafford’s new era under Sir Jim Ratcliffe, positioning United as frontrunners for his signature amidst global interest.
