Manchester United have been scared off signing Juventus defender Bremer this summer due to Juventus’ price tag.

According to Fichajes, United have made an approach for the Brazilian centre back.

However, the Bianconeri have made it clear that they won’t even sit down and talk to United unless an offer of at least €70 million is tabled.

This price tag is considered too high for United and as a result they are likely to look at other targets.

Bremer has been arguably the best defender in Serie A this season.

The Brazilian has been a rock at the heart of Max Allegri’s back three, with Juventus conceding just 13 goals in 22 games in Serie A.

Bremer was named Serie A Defender of the Year during the 2021-22 season for Torino.

This led to Juventus signing him in the summer of 2022 after hijacking Inter Milan’s move for the player.

He had a steady first campaign with the Bianconeri but has really come into his own this term.

The Brazilian boasts lightning pace, is aggressive, excellent in the air and reads the game well. His one weakness is his distribution but in terms of defending he is an outstanding defender.

Man Utd want to sign a centre back

Man Utd are in the market for at least one top centre-back in 2024 as a number of their current central defenders are likely to leave in the summer.

The futures of Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans are in doubt as their contracts are expiring, while Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire’s futures are not secure either.

The hottest name on the market in recent weeks has been Bayern Munich defender Matthijs De Ligt, who has lost his starting place at the club and would consider a move to United this summer.
