£51.6m Man Utd bid to be accepted, with signing of dominant defender ON through ‘verbal pact’

Juventus will accept a £51.6m bid from Manchester United for dominant centre-back Gleison Bremer, with various reports detailing why a transfer is possible and how much the Brazilian would earn at Old Trafford.

Bremer, 27, has emerged as one of the most formidable centre-halves in Italian football. The four-cap Brazil international joined Torino in 2018 and was named Serie A’s best defender in his final season with the club (2021/22) before earning a move to Juventus.

Indeed, Italian journalist Rudy Galetti previously declared Bremer is on the Red Devils’ radar. La Gazzetta dello Sport are another source to link Man Utd with the defender.

As you might expect, Juventus have little appetite to sell such a key performer. Indeed, Bremer has started every Serie A match he’s been available for this term, with his one absence coming via a suspension for collecting five yellow cards.

However, Bremer’s contract in Turin contains a release clause worth a reported €60m/£51.6m. Per Fabrizio Romano, the clause does not become active until 2025, though a transfer this summer is more than possible.

Explaining why, Romano previously revealed the existence of a ‘verbal pact’ between Juventus and Bremer. In effect, Juventus will give strong consideration to any bids they receive this summer that are in the ballpark of the release fee.

Now, according to a fresh update from Corriere Torino, a Man Utd bid of £51.6m will be accepted by Juventus.

If signed, Bremer could be viewed as the long-term partner for Lisandro Martinez at the heart of defence.

Bremer is right-footed and standing at around 6ft 2in tall and boasting excellent physical strength, he would dovetail well with the Argentine.

Speculation Man Utd could use Juventus’ interest in Mason Greenwood to their advantage appears to be fading.
