MANCHESTER UNITED lead the race to sign Juventus star Gleison Bremer for next season, a report claims.
The defender will not come cheap however as the Italian giants are asking for a hefty sum to let their starboy move to the Red Devils.

United are keen to acquire a defender as their backline has been inconsistent this term due to the countless injuries in the squad.
And Erik ten Hag has eyed up the man to bolster his defence.
Juventus ace Bremer, 26, is an “ideal” target for the Dutchman’s squad, according to Calciomercato.
The Red Devils are expected to have a meeting with the Serie A side and United are “above all” the clubs in the race to sign the centre-back who is “among the best in the world”.
It’s not clear when a discussion will take place between the clubs, but the Italian media continue to push the Red Devils as the frontrunners.
But Juventus will only listen to offers “no less than £59m” excluding bonuses as they try to hold onto their starman.
Bremer made his senior debut in 2017 with Brazil giants Atletico Mineiro.
He then hopped over to Europe to Torino in 2018 and assisted the Italian side’s backline in 110 games.
The 2021-22 Serie A Best Defender of the Year winner made a move across Turin, Italy from rivals Torino in 2022 on a five-year deal.
But the Brazil international has recently signed a new contract to remain at Juventus until June 2028 after starting in almost every game for the squad this term.
And with a new owner British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe United could line up the right offer to sway to Italian side to sell Bremer to Old Trafford.
