Torino provide key transfer update on Milan, Chelsea and Spurs target Bremer

Torino President Urbano Cairo reveals Gleison Bremer will sign a contract extension with the Granata, but ‘he will play in the Champions League one day.’

The Brazilian centre-back sees his current deal expire in June 2023.

He has been linked with many big clubs in Europe, including Milan, Chelsea, Inter and Tottenham.

However, Torino President Cairo has revealed that the 24-year-old will sign a contract extension with the Granata.

“He is aware of what Torino mean to him,” Cairo told La Stampa newspaper.

Cairo: ‘Belotti expected Milan move’

“We will extend soon, there are all the right conditions in place. One day he will be free to cultivate his ambition and pick a team that plays in the Champions League.”

Bremer is one of Milan’s top targets in defence for next season, but Torino are open to sending the Brazilian to San Siro only if Tommaso Pobega is included in a player-plus-cash swap deal.

Pobega joined Torino on loan in the summer and the Rossoneri are not to open to sell him permanently.

“I like the way he read the games and how he moves on the pitch,” Cairo said talking about the midfielder.

“We wanted to get him with a different formula, adding an option to buy.”

Cairo also spoke about Andrea Belotti’s future, saying that the striker will likely leave the club as a free agent in June.

Belotti could have joined Milan for €60-70m in 2017, but Torino didn’t sell him and Cairo said that he has now understood he should sell players who want to leave. Perhaps this could serve as a lesson when Bremer knocks on his door in the future.

    As a Milan fan this news is bittersweet. It means Bremer is not coming in January or in the summer because we’re not paying 30m for him (might as well get Botman at that price, who is better). But Cairo’s comments give me hope that Belotti will sign as a free agent, therefore allowing us to spend money elsewhere (for the aforementioned Botman and RW and depth at AMC). There are a couple of strikers I’d prefer over Belotti, but he’s not terrible and it won’t cost us money, so it could be the right move for the next 2-3 years while we sort out more young talent (and maybe Colombo develops?).
