Juventus have confirmed the signing of defender Gleison Bremer from Torino on a deal which will run until 2027.

Reports revealed earlier this week that the Bianconeri had beaten Serie A rivals Inter to the Torino star.

Inter had been firm favourites to land the Brazilian.

But their inability to offload Milan Skriniar to Paris Saint-Germain played a role in stalling talks.

Bremer looked set to join Inter after announcing his intention to leave Torino, seeking Champions League experience to boost his World Cup squad hopes for Brazil in Qatar in November.

Matthijs de Ligt recently left Italy to move to Bayern Munich, and Juve has now signed his replacement for an initial €41m with a further €8m in potential add-ons.

Juve’s statement reads:

“The Bianconeri defence has been strengthened by the arrival of Gleison Bremer, who today signed a contract that ties him to Juventus on a permanent deal until 2027.”

Bremer was named Serie A’s best defender last season for his performances for Torino.

Their statement adds:

“The company would like to thank Gleison, a respectable young man and exemplary professional, for the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment that have always distinguished him over the years.

“The whole Torino Football Club greets Gleison with affection and with great good luck for the continuation of his career.”

Juventus are looking to improve on their fourth-place finish last season.

They maintained their Champions League status following the return of Massimiliano Allegri.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side lost Matthijs de Ligt to Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

But swiftly acted to bring in Serie A’s Defender of the Year from the 2021-22 season.

But the 25-year-old will still be playing his football in Turin next campaign after Juve confirmed Bremer’s arrival on a five-year contract from their city rivals.

Bremer caught the eye in Serie A last season, making the most recoveries (284) and leading the charts for aerial duels won (132).

The centre-back also led the way across Europe’s top five leagues for interceptions (105), averaging 3.3 per 90 minutes.

Bremer will hope to get his first taste of Serie A action for Juve.

Allegri’s side starts their league campaign at home to Sassuolo on August 15.
