Manchester City have been tipped to make a move for Torino centre-back Bremer. Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin was asked about interest in the Brazilian from the other Serie A teams and Bayern Munich, when he replied:
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there were PSG and Manchester City as well. We are talking about a defender who plays at a sensational level. He stopped all the attackers he faced, he is a modern defender. Inter, Juve and Milan have set their sights on him, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he went abroad for really very important figures.”
There has been a lot of talk about Bremer’s future in the Italian press over the past few weeks. The 24-year-old only signed a new contract with Torino a few weeks ago but there is an expectation that he will be sold for around €30m (£25m) this summer.
Manchester United are believed to be sending a scout to watch Bremer in action soon, while both Chelsea and Liverpool have been mentioned as potential suitors in recent months.
Apart from Biasin’s comments, though, City have not been linked by a credible source, and it’s unlikely that they will go after the centre-half as things stand.
Manager Pep Guardiola already has the best defence in the Premier League, with Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones and Nathan Ake all at his disposal.
