Newcastle United are very close to completing their mission to ensure the long-term viability of their midfield maestro, Bruno Guimaraes. The Magpies and the Brazilian superstar are close to finalising a new deal after months of talks and a little snag.
News of this monumental agreement has set the football world alight. A deal to keep Newcastle United midfielder Guimaraes at St. James’ Park has reportedly come close to being finalised, as reported by respected transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. For some time now, the club and the 25-year-old midfielder have been in contract negotiations, with both sides expressing a desire to continue working together.
There were suspicions among Europe’s elite teams when Bruno Guimaraes transferred to Newcastle United from Lyon in January 2022. The Brazilian’s talents were sought after by a number of top clubs, including Arsenal and Real Madrid. Nonetheless, Guimaraes quickly acclimated to life in the Premier League, where he now serves as a key cog in Newcastle’s midfield. As a result of his stellar play, the squad is in the Champions League this season.
Manager Eddie Howe of Newcastle has been quite smart in building his team’s strategy around their exciting Brazilian player. Guimaraes has broken the norms of a defensive midfielder by making 61 appearances, scoring 10 goals, and assisting on six more. The team now aims to build its future around him. Several months ago, negotiations for an extension of his contract started. The player has made no secret of his desire to continue with the club for the foreseeable future.

Barcelona and Real Madrid have shown interest in Guimaraes, but his persistent dedication to making history with Newcastle United has made the transfer process much smoother. Romano claims that the conversations over the last ten days have gone well, with even the ‘ secret meetings’ delivering positive results. The last details are presently being worked out, and it looks like Guimaraes will soon sign.
The fact that Guimaraes’ current contract doesn’t expire until 2026 may have put off prospective suitors. Fans at St. James’ Park consider him a favourite, but news of the upcoming contract extension has brightened their spirits. With Joelinton and the newly acquired Sandro Tonali in the middle, Newcastle United seems ready to take a step forward in both local and European tournaments.
As a result of the drama surrounding the extension of Bruno Guimaraes’ contract, Newcastle United supporters may rejoice in the keeping of their midfield dynamo and look forward to better times in the beautiful game.
