Corriere Granata: Milan waste no time – meeting scheduled with Torino over Bremer

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have wasted no time in searching for an alternative to Sven Botman as they have scheduled a meeting with Torino, a report claims.

Multiple sources are now claiming that Newcastle United have won the race to sign Botman as he has finally accepted the idea of a move to join the Premier League side having held out for Milan to convince Lille.

Now, the hunt to find an alternative is on and according to Corriere Granata it seems Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have wasted absolutely no time in looking for the right man to bolster the rearguard.

They claim that a meeting between Torino and Milan is scheduled in the coming days to talk about Gleison Bremer. Having definitely missed out on Botman, the Brazilian is now one of the first choices of Maldini and Massara.

Bremer was voted the best defender in Serie A last season and he has certainly caught the eye with his impressive performances, even being labelled a ‘great defender’ by Olivier Giroud after their duel last season.

    1. Botman liked Milan and wanted to go there. The will of the player isn’t everything you know. Also Deulofeu has always wanted to get a permanent move to Milan. And where is he now? Not in Milan.

      1. Supposedly there’s a gentleman’s agreement that Torino won’t refuse offers at or above €25 mil. So if multiple teams make bids Torino is under no obligation to accept a bid of €25 million if another team offers more.

    2. Yes 100% correct, and it’s very funny to read… Milan waste no time, are there new drugs for journalists? Do you know something?

  1. I’ve never watched Botman play but I believe he’s a great player when everyone appreciates him so much. Bremer I watched on several occasions and the man impressed me ! The media uses the name “rock” and that’s what it looked like to me in the games against us and Inter. Do we have any chance of bringing him in and at what price… !?

  2. The way I see it Redbird is turning their back on Maldini.
    Maldini asked for a significant transfer budget to place Milan on a higher level, and Redbird obviously doesn’t want to inject cash into the team….

    1. How many times does this need to be explained? Even if they wanted to, the FFP rules are very clear, cash injections from the owner are NOT allowed. What the hell don’t you understand?

      1. Are you high bro?
        Owners can cash in money as long as the club can justify the amount via income. Check and see AC Milan’s income…….

        1. No, I’m not, but you’re clearly, let’s be nice and say misinformed. Go educate yourself before you continue to embarrass yourself.
          You can only spend on players what you earn. Milan lost over 50 M last season and close to 100 the year before. They are under a settlement agreement with UEFA due to the overspending in the last few years before Elliot took over. They are required to balance the books or say goodbye to being allowed in the CL. If the owner “injects” cash that money can only be used for certain things, youth teams and infrastructure mostly, NOT transfer fees and salaries.

  3. Give torino our academy product like nasti/colombo/gabbia/roback to reduce torino 30m euro asking price for bremer. Dont give pobega unless pioli dont want to use pobega next season

  4. I’m all for this. I personally feel Bremer fits our style better than Botman. He’s a better athlete and much faster than Botman and he’s still good in the air (not as much as Botman but still better in the air than Tomori or Kalulu).

    Plus as a small bonus there are talks of him getting italian citizenship and playing for the nazionale which is something always appreciated. We’ll see. Regardless if we are going to sign a CB (not sure it’s actually needed) then Bremer is my top choice.

  5. There are at least two downsides with Bremer: he is not left-footed like Botman, and he is a pretty poor vertical passer of the ball.
