Bruno Guimaraes Commits Future to Newcastle United with New Contract
Newcastle United fans can breathe a sigh of relief as Bruno Guimaraes is set to sign a new long-term contract with the club. The Brazilian midfielder has been a standout player since joining the team from Lyon 18 months ago and has attracted interest from top clubs like Liverpool. However, the 25-year-old is now ready to commit his future to Newcastle for another five years until 2028.
Bruno’s decision to sign the new deal will be made public soon, according to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano. The contract will include a release clause of around £100 million, providing some protection for Newcastle in case any big clubs come knocking. It’s worth noting that Arsenal and Chelsea have both recently paid over £100 million for central midfielders, highlighting Bruno’s value in the market.
Newcastle’s return to the Champions League this season has undoubtedly played a significant role in Bruno’s decision to stay. The club made their long-awaited comeback to Europe’s elite competition with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against AC Milan. The result showcased the team’s potential and ambition under manager Eddie Howe.
Speaking about his team’s performance, Howe admitted that they have fallen short in their bid to build on last season’s fourth-placed Premier League finish. However, he remains optimistic and believes that recent victories over Brentford and the impressive Champions League point against Milan will boost the team’s confidence and help them find their top form.
“It always goes in phases. The level or the potential for the team, the squad, is high but confidence is such an easy word to use, but such a difficult thing to find sometimes,” said Howe. “Hopefully, the last two results will have given us that missing ingredient back. We needed a win.”
The news of Bruno Guimaraes’ contract extension will undoubtedly be met with joy by Newcastle fans. The midfielder has been a key figure in the team’s success and has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. His technical ability, vision, and work rate have made him a fan favorite at St. James’ Park.
With Bruno’s future secured, Newcastle can now focus on building a strong squad capable of challenging for major honors. The club’s return to the Champions League after a 20-year absence is a significant milestone, and it presents an opportunity for Newcastle to attract top talent and establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with in European football.
The release clause in Bruno’s contract provides some reassurance for Newcastle, but it also highlights the increasing transfer fees in the market. Clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea have shown their willingness to spend big on midfielders, and Newcastle will need to continue investing wisely to strengthen their squad further.
As Newcastle fans eagerly await the official announcement of Bruno Guimaraes’ new contract, they can take solace in the fact that their star midfielder is committed to the club’s future. With his talent and dedication, Bruno will undoubtedly play a crucial role in Newcastle’s quest for success both domestically and in Europe.
