Danny Murphy claims Bruno Guimaraes will not join Liverpool

Danny Murphy thinks Liverpool have ‘no chance’ to sign Newcastle United talisman Bruno Guimaraes in the summer.

Danny Murphy has insisted Liverpool should look away from Bruno Guimaraes as they have ‘no chance’ of signing the Newcastle United talisman in the summer. The Brazilian, who has a market value of €60 million, has been a big presence for the Magpies this season as they look to seal a Champions League spot.

They are tussling with Manchester United for third or fourth spot on the table, with the fight set to go on until the season’s final day. Newcastle United’s rise in the Premier League has been sensational in the last 12 months.

Eddie Howe deserves big praise for his work at the club since taking over. He has made wise decisions in the transfer window and revived the fortunes of players who were once deemed not worthy of a place in the side.

One of the key decisions from the club came with the signing of Bruno Guimaraes. The Brazilian has transformed the team with his terrific displays in midfield. He has become Newcastle’s talisman in the last 12 months, and the Magpies want to agree on a new deal in the coming period.

Liverpool have been interested in a move for Guimaraes as Jurgen Klopp looks to revamp his midfield options. The manager wants an upgrade over Fabinho in the centre, with the Newcastle talisman seen as the perfect candidate. However, former star and pundit Danny Murphy insists the Reds have ‘no chance’ in doing so, via his comments in the Liverpool Echo.

Murphy said, “(He is a) super player. He has got that lovely balance of creativity, passing and skill with an appetite to work back, defend and spot danger. When you’ve got that balance, and you’re good at both, you become an elite footballer. He is a God up there – and he won’t be going anywhere. No chance.”

Liverpool are not the only team linked with Guimaraes, with many other rivals also keen. Newcastle may not worry too much about those stories about their talisman, as they will certainly look to tie him down over a new long-term deal.

Howe will see his presence key for Newcastle, who will embark on a European journey next season. Liverpool will continue to search the market for the right option to improve their midfield, but they may have to look away from any potential move for Guimaraes.
