In a high-stakes transfer saga, three football giants, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Liverpool, are closely monitoring the future of Newcastle United’s midfield maestro, Bruno Guimaraes. However, the Magpies have staunchly declared him ‘not for sale,’ even as reports suggest that offers in the ballpark of €120 million might sway their decision.
Bruno Guimaraes, 25, arrived at Newcastle United 18 months ago from Lyon in a €42 million deal. Since then, he has evolved into one of the Premier League’s standout midfielders. Follow your favourite Premier League team with attractive football betting odds from Nextbet.
Guimaraes has been the driving force behind Newcastle’s midfield, appearing in 61 matches and contributing ten goals and six assists during his tenure with the club. His meteoric rise hasn’t gone unnoticed, attracting interest from top-tier clubs.
Notably, Liverpool made a bid to acquire Guimaraes during the summer transfer window, albeit unsuccessfully. Chelsea and Manchester City were also keen on securing his signature, showcasing his immense appeal to Premier League giants. Real Madrid, on the other hand, represents a surprising contender in the race for Guimaraes.
The Spanish powerhouse’s interest stems from the impending retirements of midfield stalwarts Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, necessitating the acquisition of a younger, dynamic midfielder. Bruno Guimaraes fits this profile perfectly, making him an attractive prospect for Real Madrid.
Liverpool, despite bolstering their midfield with four signings during the summer transfer window, still has their eyes on Guimaraes. Amid uncertainties surrounding Thiago Alcantara’s future, Guimaraes could potentially serve as his long-term successor.
As for Chelsea, who have already brought in several young talents this year, the addition of Guimaraes might not be a pressing need. However, if they choose to pursue the 25-year-old, it’s clear that it won’t come cheap.
While Newcastle United remains resolute in their desire to retain Guimaraes, a staggering €120 million bid could tempt them to reconsider. Recent reports, though, suggest that the Brazilian midfielder is on the verge of signing a new contract with the Magpies.
As the transfer window drama unfolds, the footballing world watches with bated breath to see if Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Liverpool can disrupt Newcastle’s plans and secure the services of the coveted Bruno Guimaraes. Get the latest updates from the Premier League only on Nextbet Sports.
