The possibility of Bruno Guimaraes signing a new contract with Newcastle United is a hot topic right now, and now a different development has been made involving another Magpies legend.
Bruno Guimaraes is expected to re-sign with Newcastle.
Making the most of their newfound cash and significantly strengthening their team, Newcastle has made some outstanding acquisitions in recent years. By finishing fourth in the Premier League the previous season, they were able to return to the Champions League after a 20-year absence thanks to the influx of players to St James’ Park.
Bruno, who joined the Magpies in January 2022 and immediately made a significant difference in midfield by adding both quality and a winning mindset to that part of the field, is one of the biggest players to have entered the league.
Even though his current deal with the Magpies expires in the summer of 2026, the Brazilian is allegedly close to signing a new one. If true, this would be huge news for the team and possibly as significant as any new acquisition.
While securing Bruno’s future is at the top of Newcastle’s list of priorities, resolving the fates of other players is also crucial, and a significant development has come to light regarding one of his teammates.
Will Callum Willson stay at Newcastle any longer?
Talks have begun to extend Callum Wilson’s current contract, which expires in the summer of 2019, thus he may now sign a new one at St. James’:
Callum Wilson and Newcastle have begun contract negotiations for a new agreement at St. James’ Park, according to TEAMtalk. Wilson joined Newcastle from Bournemouth in 2020, and is now in the final year of his contract.
Since moving to Tyneside, the 31-year-old has been a roaring success for the Magpies and was crucial to their fourth-place finish last season and subsequent qualification for the Champions League. Wilson, who has two goals in Newcastle’s first four games, led the team with 18 goals and five assists in the previous campaign.
Given that Wilson is now 31 years old and has a history of injury issues, extending his stay makes great sense for Newcastle, but only if it is a relatively brief-term contract. He might continue to be a valuable squad member and serve as Alexander Isak’s helpful backup option if he wore a Magpies jersey until he was approximately 33 or 34 years old.
The 40 goals in 86 games that the eight-cap, two-goal England international has scored for Newcastle since moving there from Bournemouth back in 2020 show little sign of slowing down.
He knows the club well and still has enough left in the tank to be a handful for Premier League defenders for some time, having been hailed as a “hugely important part of our team” by Magpies manager Eddie Howe, so losing him next summer wouldn’t necessarily be the end of the world. Brentford striker Ivan Toney has been linked with a move.
