Football Transfers reports that during the most recent transfer window, PSG made an offer for Bruno Guimaraes to Newcastle United that was rejected.
rivals in the Premier League According to reports, Liverpool also put up £100 million for the Brazilian midfielder. Newcastle, though, resisted both the Reds’ and the French giants’ bids because they were desperate to keep Bruno at St. James’ Park.
The size of PSG’s offer is rumored to have exceeded £100 million, but the precise sum is unclear. In any case, the fact that the Tyneside club felt ready to reject such an outrageous fee for the 25-year-old is a clear indication of their recent success.
Bruno Guimaraes’ future at Newcastle is uncertain.
The Magpies had the opportunity to sell Bruno this summer for a big profit after shelling out £40 million to wrest him away from Lyon in January 2022.
The £120,000 weekly star, though, is an important part of Eddie Howe’s ambitions for Newcastle. It would have been devastating for the team to lose his services this summer, and even with plenty of cash on hand, finding a replacement for a player of Bruno’s caliber is no simple assignment.
However, the fight to keep Bruno at the club is unlikely to be done. The player is reportedly negotiating a new contract with Newcastle and is requesting that a release provision be incorporated into the agreement, according to the aforementioned article. It’s possible that a price between £100 million and £150 million will be agreed upon for that clause.
If so, his release clause may be enticed to be triggered in either the upcoming January or summer transfer window by PSG, Liverpool, and other suitors.
