Bruno Guimaraes comments on Real Madrid links

Bruno Guimaraes has spoken about rumours linking him with Real Madrid, insisting that there is very little substance in them.

Bruno Guimaraes has confirmed that Real Madrid showed interest in him in the summer transfer window. But the Newcastle United midfielder quickly shut down talks of a potential move. In addition, the Brazilian international insisted that he is happy at his current club while acknowledging his relationship with the Magpies’ fans.

Bruno Guimaraes has taken little time to stamp his authority in the Premier League. The 24-year-old surprised everyone by snubbing several big clubs to join Newcastle United in the January transfer window. And he has become the poster boy of the Magpies’ resurgence under their new owners.

The Brazilian international has been top-class thus far this season, chipping in with two goals and one assist in seven appearances. The player’s latest exploit came against Brentford, as he scored a match-winning brace. And Bruno Guimaraes’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid, in particular, keen on signing him.

The interest from Real Madrid first emerged in the lead-up to the summer transfer window. And Los Blancos even considered pursuing the player after Casemiro joined Manchester United. But Newcastle United remained firm and did not wilt under Real Madrid’s immense pressure. Bruno Guimaraes has now confirmed he had a conversation with Real Madrid.

He said, “I feel at home here! Real Madrid are the best team in the world. It was just a conversation, it was nothing more. I never doubted the project, I believed in it from the beginning. I always wanted to play in the Premier League and enjoy it. The fans love me and I love them. I’m not joking, I feel at home here. I need to keep moving forward.”

Considering how brilliant he has been this season, Bruno Guimaraes has the qualities to be Luka Modric’s long-term successor. At the same time, he can also compete with Aurelien Tchouameni for the holding midfield berth. But the 24-year-old is admittedly not going anywhere anytime soon.

Meanwhile, the Brazilian international has also emerged on Premier League champions Manchester City’s radar. But he will likely remain with Newcastle United for a few more years before even thinking about departing from St. James’ Park.
