Thiago Motta wants to keep Bremer at Juventus


Thiago Motta is reportedly keen to keep Juventus defender Gleison Bremer off the transfer market this summer. Motta has yet to be confirmed as Bianconeri boss, but it widely tipped to begin the job next week. According to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the coach sees Bremer as the foundational pillar of Juventus’ defensive line for the upcoming season. The Brazilian defender, who was included in the Serie A 2023-24 Team of the Season according to Opta statistics, is set to play a crucial role in Motta’s plans.

Summer Scenario

Recently, there has been considerable speculation about Bremer potentially leaving Juventus. This stems from a verbal promise made by the club during his last contract renewal. This agreement includes a release clause, effective from the summer of 2025, ranging between €60 and €70 million, depending on the stature of the interested English club. Juventus had committed to releasing Bremer this summer if an offer within that range was received.

Should Manchester United, who showed interest in late January, return with a substantial offer, the scenario might change. However, Bremer’s own reaction will be crucial, especially since he could become a key figure under Thiago Motta at Juventus.

Future Prospects

Juventus initially signed Bremer in the summer of 2022 to effectively replace Matthijs de Ligt. Bremer had shone at Torino under Juric, a tactical environment more akin to Motta’s approach than Allegri’s. The arrival of the former Bologna coach at Juventus’ training ground, Continassa, could create the ideal conditions for Bremer to thrive.

Bremer is also aiming for a stable position in the Brazilian national team, where his inclusion has been inconsistent. His prospects at Juventus are promising; last summer, he turned down inquiries from Premier League clubs, including Tottenham. Staying in Turin offers him opportunities to compete in both the Champions League and the Club World Cup.
