Gleison Bremer to Juventus is now a done deal, the Brazilian defender will join Juve in a deal worth €41M + €9M. Juventus had to face some real competition from rivals Inter Milan. Here is the break down of the whole transfer saga:
Inter have been wanting Bremer since December, the Nerazurri approached the player’s entourage and agreed personal terms in January. The player and the club had full agreement on a 5 year deal worth €3M per year.
After agreement on personal terms, Inter were unable to find an agreement with Torino on a transfer fee for the player, months passed by and Inter, still didn’t have a agreement with Torino.
On the other side, Juventus were set to lose Matthjs De Ligt to Bayern Munich, Juve decided to jump in the race on Monday, on Monday, they made the first contact with the player’s agent and told them they were ready ready to make a better offer than Inter’s. The Bianconeri were also ready to satisfy Torino’s demands. However, Inter already had a meeting scheduled with Torino on Monday evening, Inter wanted to reach a full agreement and seal the deal but were unable to do so, the Nerazurri’s offer was €30M including bonuses plus Casadei on loan. Torino had no intention to accept this offer.
On Monday night, it was becoming clear that Inter will end up loosing the player to Juventus as Juve were preparing a better offer for both the player and Torino. Before, Juventus presented their offer to Torino, Inter made a final attempt for Bremer, offering €30M fixed amount plus €5M and Casadei on a permanent transfer. Torino did not accept this as they were waiting for Juve’s offer.
Juventus made their offer a few hours later, the offer made by Juventus was €40M + €7M add ons, the clubs negotiated a bit and full agreement was reached soon for €41M + €9M add ons. After reaching full agreement with Torino, the Bianconeri met with the agents of Bremer to discuss personal terms. The terms agreed were a five year deal worth more than €5M net per year. These terms were accepted by Bremer’s agent and Juventus reached a full agreement on personal terms as well & the deal was completed by all means.
It is incredible how Juventus closed the deal for Bremer inside two days despite Inter trying for several months. It has to said, Juve’s pull remains unmatchable.
