Manchester United seems determined to strengthen their defensive line in the upcoming season. And the name that stands out prominently in speculations is that of Brazilian center-back Bremer, currently playing for Juventus.

According to reports from the English newspaper "Mirror," Manchester United's football director, Dan Ashworth, has Bremer as his primary target to bolster the defensive sector of the Red Devils. This interest is not unfounded, as the Brazilian has shown quality and consistency throughout his performances, especially in the Italian Serie A.

The potential transfer of Bremer to Manchester United wouldn't be a straightforward negotiation. Juventus, the club holding the player's rights, imposes a considerable release clause, valued at £43 million. This astronomical figure highlights the confidence and value the Italian club attributes to the defender, making his release a daunting task.

Despite the financial obstacles and potential resistance from Juventus, Manchester United's officials seem determined to finalize Bremer's signing. The preference for the Brazilian center-back is clear, even in the presence of a "plan B" in case of failed negotiations. Jarrad Branthwaite of Everton stands as an alternative, however, the higher cost of his acquisition makes Bremer even more attractive in the eyes of the Red Devils.

Bremer's potential arrival at Old Trafford would bring a series of expectations and questions. Will the Brazilian center-back be able to adapt quickly to the demanding environment of the Premier League? Will his experience and technical quality be sufficient to make a difference in a defense that has sometimes been unstable in recent times?

Before his stint at Juventus, the defender had spells at renowned Brazilian clubs like São Paulo and Atlético Mineiro. His successful journey through the youth ranks and his rise to professionalism caught the attention of international scouts, culminating in his transfer to European soccer.
