Chelsea and Arsenal embarrassed .. Who is the talent of Newcastle?

In the January 2022 transfer period, the Newcastle administration made an exciting deal to include Bruno Guimaraes, the midfielder for Brazil and Olympique Lyonnais.

The deal is the second most expensive player since the Saudi Investment Fund acquired Newcastle, as the 24-year-old cost the MacPeace treasury approximately 37 million pounds.

Guimarães succeeded in his first task after arriving in Newcastle. He was suffering in terms of results and the team was close to being relegated to the First Division.

At the level of numbers, Guimaraes managed to score five goals in 17 games and made a goal in his first seasons, and in 8 matches in the English Premier League season (2022-2023) he scored two goals and made the same.

In 2020, Guimaraes expressed his dream of moving to the English Premier League, saying: “It is the best league in the world, all matches are close.”

Indeed, Guimaraes’ talent when he was in the ranks of Atletico Paranaense caught the attention of Chelsea and Arsenal, but the French Lyon won the race to win the Brazilian for 18 million pounds.

Guimaraes’ numbers with Newcastle are the best since his career, as he played 84 games with Atlético Paranaense, scoring seven goals, and with Lyon he scored three goals in 71 games.

According to British press reports, Guimarães appears to be on the way to a bigger stage in his career by moving to Real Madrid.

The British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, said that Newcastle club wants to renew Guimaraes’ contract, although he has a contract with the English club until 2026, but the club’s management wants to improve the player’s salary in order to convince him to continue.

“We are preparing a new contract for Bruno Guimaraes, he is a great player and a huge part of our journey,” said Newcastle sporting director Dan Ashurt.

Guimarães explained his position on the move to Real Madrid, saying: “Real Madrid is the best team in the world, things did not go beyond talks.”

He added: “I want to be a legend in Newcastle, they love me and I love them.”

Real Madrid certainly has goals to renew the team’s blood, especially in the midfield, after Casemiro’s departure to Manchester United in the last transfer market, and Toni Kroos and Luka Modric’s contract will expire in the summer of 2023.

The closest candidate to move to Real Madrid is Jude Bellingham, the jewel of Borussia Dortmund, but the young Englishman will not move for less than 120 million euros, according to the newspaper “Bild”.
