I would love to play at Old Trafford in the premier League – The €50m-rated Juventus defender Man United want to sign provide a surprise summer transfer decision

Manchester united have reportedly made the Brazilian a priority summer target, and he certainly has the ability to add a new dimension to their defence

The Sir Jim Ratcliffe era is now getting into full swing at Manchester United, with the INEOS chairman currently in the process of overhauling the club’s transfer policy to start closing the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

United’s new minority owner has vowed to “knock them all off their perch”, but has also warned that “spending lavishly is not the solution”, having seen so many high-profile signings fail to live up to expectations at Old Trafford over the past decade.

United are now trying to fix problem areas in the team and only want players who fit in with their ethos for their future.

Revitalising an ageing backline will be the first order of business when the summer transfer window opens, with Juventus enforcer Gleison Bremer said to be top of their wishlist.

Calciomercato has reported that the Red Devils have already made contact with the Brazilian’s representatives, and Juventus are open to negotiating a deal despite tying him down to a new contract in December.

That agreement included a €50 million (£43m/$54m) release clause, according to inews, which would be a bargain for a player of Bremer’s quality.

“On the streets, I learnt how not to lose. I learnt how to be aggressive with football in the streets. I also learnt how to be a little bit sneaky. You can elude your opponents and sometimes the referee.”

Bremer sold ice-creams to help fund his travel for away games with Desportivo, and his street-smarts helped him quickly became a key member of the team, with a loan move to Brazilian giants Sao Paulo eventually earned in 2016. He went on to make his professional debut for the reserves as a 19-year-old that year and helped them win the Under-20 Copa do Brasil.

As per South American outlet Hoje em Dia, Sao Paulo could have kept Bremer for another year at the cost of just £40,000, but they waited too long to make a decision on his future, which allowed Atletico Mineiro to swoop in and secure his services.

Bremer officially joined Atletico in March 2017 and made his senior bow three months later in a Brazilian Serie A clash against Chapecoense.

The talented defender was then awarded a contracted extension just four games into his first-team career, which put him on the radar of a number of big European clubs, and Atletico would ultimately be powerless to prevent him from spreading his wings.

Torino won the race for Bremer’s signature in the summer of 2018 as they struck a £5m deal with Atletico.

He signed a five-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico Grande, but had to wait for his chance to make a significant impact.

A switch to Old Trafford would make the most sense, though, given United’s pressing need for a defender of his mould. According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Red Devils would even be willing to offer Mason Greenwood to Juve as a makeweight in any deal for Bremer, potentially bringing his price down as low as £34m ($43m).

The introduction of Bremer could well provide the base for a new era of success under Ratcliffe and United’s new INEOS regime

“You want to arrive playing. But I did not understand the tactics of Italian [football] very well, which is totally different from Brazil,” he said in an interview with Esporte Interativo. “It is very tactical, it works a lot of space, it’s faster football.”

“I like La Liga and the Premier League, but the Premier League is a very exciting championship and I watch a lot of matches and they are very entertaining,” Bremer added to The Telegraph. “One day, I would like to play in the Premier League.”
