Newcastle United has found immense success in the transfer market during the era of PIF ownership. Since the takeover in October 2021, almost every signing made by the club has proven to be successful. Among the notable signings, Bruno Guimaraes stands out.
Bruno Guimaraes, who was acquired for £40 million from Lyon in January 2022, has emerged as one of the most valuable players in the Premier League. He recently signed a new contract and has received further recognition.
In fact, Guimaraes has been ranked as the 18th best player in the world by 90 Min for the current season. This is a significant achievement, considering that only seven Premier League players are ranked higher, highlighting what a valuable addition he has been for Newcastle.
While Guimaraes has recently committed to a new contract, there is talk of a release clause, the specifics of which remain somewhat unclear. Given his exceptional quality, top clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool, and Chelsea have shown interest in him.
Although there is currently little reason for Guimaraes to leave Newcastle, as the club has seen rapid success since his arrival, it might be unrealistic to expect him to stay indefinitely, especially if elite teams like Real Madrid, known for signing the best players globally, express interest.
Newcastle fans should savor Guimaraes’s presence while he is with the club instead of worrying about his long-term future, as his current contributions are more than satisfactory.
