Matheus Simonete Bressaneli (born 15 January 1993), commonly known as Bressan, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a central defender for Peñarol, on loan from Grêmio.

Club career

Born in Caxias do Sul, Bressan joined Juventude's youth setup in 2005, aged 12. In 2010 he was promoted to the first team for the 2010 Campeonato Gaúcho, and made his professional debut on 21 March 2010, in a 1-3 away loss against Novo Hamburgo.[1] However, does not stand in starting XI of the Juventude.

In the second half of 2011, Bressan won his first professional title, the Copa FGF, acting as a backup, however. In April 2012, he went on a trial period at Ligue 1 side Lille, but nothing came of it;[2] he was also a part of the squad which won the Copa FGF for the second time of the club's history.

In December 2012 Bressan signed with Grêmio, after a partnership between the Porto Alegre's club and Juventude was established.[3] He made his debut for the new club on 3 February 2013, in a 2-1 away loss against Internacional.[4]

After being made a starter by manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo, Bressan played the Copa Libertadores and was also runner-up of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, acting as a starter in both tournaments. In 2014, he was also a part of the squad which was runner-up of the Campeonato Gaúcho, but mainly as a backup.

On 27 August 2014 Bressan would sign a new deal with Tricolor until December 2016, being subsequently loaned to Premier League side Queens Park Rangers until June 2015.[5] However, the deal collapsed a day later, after his agent, Marcelo Lipatín, revealed details of the negotiation for the media, thus bothering the directors of the English club.[6]

On 23 December 2014 Bressan moved to fellow league team Flamengo, in a season-long loan deal.[7]
