Gossip: Manchester United Eyes Wolves Midfielder Joao Gomes and Juventus Defender Gleison Bremer for Summer Overhaul

Ambitious Transfer Plans Under Ratcliffe’s Purview Signal Major Changes for Red Devils

Manchester United is gearing up for a transformative summer transfer window under the stewardship of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, with plans to revamp the team’s starting lineup for the upcoming 2024/25 season.

One standout target on United’s radar is Wolves midfielder Joao Gomes, who recently made his debut for Brazil against England. Reports from Italian outlet Calciomercato suggest that United is keen on Gomes as a potential replacement for aging midfielder Casemiro. The Red Devils are evaluating a bid for Gomes, valuing him at €40 million (£34.2 million), although Wolves may demand a slightly higher fee.

Additionally, United is eyeing Juventus center-back Gleison Bremer, with significant interest in securing his services for the upcoming season. Ratcliffe is reportedly willing to trigger Bremer’s release clause, set at €58 million (£49.7 million), to bolster United’s defensive lineup.

Meanwhile, across town at Arsenal, manager Mikel Arteta is contemplating a defensive reinforcement ahead of the summer transfer window. Sporting and Ivory Coast star Ousmane Diomande has emerged as a prime target for the Gunners, with the 20-year-old catching the eye of European heavyweights, including Chelsea. Arsenal is closely monitoring Diomande’s progress, considering a potential bid to strengthen their defensive ranks.

While Arteta prioritizes the acquisition of a striker, player sales will play a crucial role in shaping Arsenal’s summer transfer strategy. Diomande boasts a release clause of around £68.6 million, but Sporting may entertain a bid in the region of £50 million, inclusive of significant contractual add-ons.

In Spain, speculation continues to swirl around Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo, who has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich. Despite Barcelona’s public stance against selling key players to raise funds, reports from Spanish outlet Marca suggest that Bayern is prepared to make a world-record bid of €100 million for Araujo. However, Barcelona remains optimistic about securing Araujo’s long-term commitment, offering the Uruguayan defender a new five-year contract as they await his decision.
