Manchester Utd to pay £52m for Varane’s replacement


Manchester United are reportedly prepared to pay £52 million to sign Juventus defender Gleison Bremer, who has been earmarked as a replacement for Raphael Varane.

Varane is likely to leave Old Trafford in the summer and as a result, Red Devils are on the hunt for a new centre-back to replace the Frenchman.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Man United have identified Bremer as a top summer target.

The Premier League club are willing to pay the Brazilian centre-back’s full release clause without any negotiations.

Meanwhile, Juventus, who signed Bremer for around £38 million from Torino in 2022, could decide to let go of their defender as they are believed to be in need of cash.

The Serie A club already have youngster Dean Huijsen, who is out on loan at AS Roma, to replace Bremer next season.
