Man United told to sign Jarrad Branthwaite over Gleison Bremer for two key reasons



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been linked to both Jarrad Branthwaite and Gleison Bremer to strengthen their defensive line after this season has finished.

As the new INEOS regime prepares for the upcoming summer transfer window, they have set their sights on bolstering their defensive lineup, with both Jarrad Branthwaite and Gleison Bremer highlighted as potential options.

With defensive stability being a priority at United, it is understandable to see both Branthwaite and Bremer being linked at such an early stage, with both players having the ability to solidify the Old Trafford backline.

Branthwaite, the 21-year-old English defender currently playing for Everton, has caught the attention of United scouts with his composed and mature performances despite his young age.

On the other hand, Gleison Bremer, the Brazilian centre-back plying his trade at Juventus, brings experience and physicality to the table and also a slightly lower price tag.

However, former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre has expressed a preference for Branthwaite over Gleison Bremer for two key reasons.

Silvestre, who played at Old Trafford for nine years, believes that Branthwaite being a home grown player to address that quota, as well as speaking English are two aspects that give him a big advantage over Bremer.

“I would go for Jarrad Branthwaite instead of Bremer. He would be a good back up and offer competition to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire,” stated Silvestre when speaking to

“He speaks English and he is home grown, which is a big advantage. He ticks a lot of boxes and he plays for the under 21 England team as well. He would be a good signing.”

This would also fall in line with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s reported preference to sign up-and-coming English talent, with Branthwaite being one of the best young defenders on England’s books right now.

However, with the uncertainty over United’s current centre-backs, all of whom have experienced injury troubles this term, the Reds could end up looking to bring in two centre-backs.,
